Conflict Analysis Research Centre

Research bridging differences


About us: Mission Statement

The Conflict Analysis Research Centre was preceeded by the Center for Conflict and Peace and its forerunner the Centre for the Analysis of Conflict , which was started in 1966 as an inter-university research project working on conflict issues in Malaysia & Singapore, Cyprus, Northern Ireland, Lebanon and South Africa, under the guidance of pioneering academics such as John Burton, John Groom, Chris Mitchell, and Keith Webb.Hugh Miall carried on these traditions during his period as Director (2005-2012) and pushed forwards our expertise in conflict resolution and applied peace-building.

CARC’s intellectual remit is intentionally broad and multi-disciplinary and while rooted primarily within politics and international relations, its theoretical and empirical interests extend beyond these formal boundaries. The interests of CARC staff encompass peace and conflict resolution as well as security studies, critical terrorism studies and human rights research.
