Current Research and Degree Programmes
CARC’s research covers theoretical themes on conflict, cooperation and international security; empirical studies of ongoing conflicts, peace-building and human rights; the role of the EU, the UN, NATO and other international organizations in conflict management; and state failure and reconstruction. We also have a particular interest in issues surrounding migration and diaspora role in conflict and peacebuilding, the potential and limits of mediation as a conflict management tool and critical perspectives on the nature of terrorism and the ethical issues linked to dialogue and negotiation.
