Security, Conflict and Justice
This programme is designed to support interdisciplinary research into security, conflict and justice. The programme is broad in its scope, ranging from political theory debates over the nature and demands of justice to empirical analysis of conflict and security dilemmas in different parts of the world; and from micro level studies of violence at the individual or household level to questions of justice and equality in a rapidly changing world. The research promoted under this programme is united by a concern to move beyond disciplinary boundaries in understanding these challenges and a concern with the implications of research for policy and political action to improve the security and livelihoods of the vulnerable and excluded. The programme brings together research perspectives from disciplines such as political science, sociology and psychology as well as interdisciplinary perspectives such as gender studies and international development. This is an interdisciplinary programme and therefore students may choose to affiliate with a range of academic departments.
