School seminars

One central theme of work in the School has been how we should understand and think about security, peace and conflict. The School’s strong research environment is evident in a wealth of events and activities. The School-wide seminar series brings major academic figures to St Andrews who offer different perspectives on:

  • political violence and terrorism
  • international security
  • conflict between (and within) state and non-state actors
  • institutional responses to conflict
  • post-war reconstruction
  • normative theories of war and peace
  • human rights
  • regional tensions
  • the social construction of conflict
  • the political economy of peace and violence.

Research students are encouraged to attend these seminars which provide a useful introduction to the dissemination and discussion of academic research across a wide range of topics.
