Every year, armed conflict (or war) shatters the lives of millions of people. Peace and non-violent approaches to resolving political conflict are critical to achieving development. Without peace, all the other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), from empowering women to tackling climate change and water, energy and food scarcity, will be impossible to achieve.
We are dedicated to understanding the processes that lead to different political phenomena, such as non-violent protests, riots, civil disobedience, and armed conflict. We shed light on the dynamics of political protest, online and offline, as well as conflict escalation, and conflict resolution. We focus on the drivers of post-conflict stability and the impact of wartime victimisation on the political trajectories of post-conflict states. Furthermore, our research places an emphasis on national and international institutions and corporations, seeking to understand their role in shaping the dynamics of contentious politics
