Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies

The Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (CPCS) promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching in a collegial environment, analysing and investigating processes of conflict and conflict resolution in the construction of long term peace.

CPCS develops academic knowledge of peace and conflict grounded in the experiences of people, places and history. It facilitates dialogue between individuals, groups or communities who are concerned with conditions of positive peace, with reference to interpersonal relationships, community relations, within organisations and nations, or relative to international relations.

Research is conducted across a range of geographic spaces that includes Sub-Saharan Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, China and Latin America. The Centre analyses the complex issues facing the global milieu of peace and conflict using a variety of conflict resolution, social justice, and peace studies tools, processes and methods.
