Conflict resolution

School of Politics and International Relations: Professor Feargal Cochrane, Professor Hugh Miall, Dr Florian Bieber, Dr Elise Féron, Dr Neophytos Loizides

Kent’s research on conflict resolution has been used to enhance professional training in the field and improve democratic participation in conflict-ridden societies. Professor Miall’s research, produced in partnership with Bradford academics, created a framework for conflict resolution that is one of the most widely referred to in the field.

Research included a focus on political representation in societies split by deep ethnic, racial and religious divisions. Inspired by the d’Hondt mechanism, as used in the Northern Ireland Assembly, researchers drew on innovations that make power-sharing arrangements more durable.
