Security, Conflict and Human Rights

This programme is one of five interdisciplinary pathways that are delivered as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership. The programme recognises social scientific research on security, conflict and human rights from different disciplines, and how different approaches treat these issues. The programme moves beyond traditional approaches to security studies to complement these with wider perspectives, such as human (in)security, including domestic insecurity and violence, to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice. We equip researchers with the interdisciplinary skills to impact research, policy and practice to avoid and mitigate security risks.

Course modules

Students on this programme will take a combination of mandatory and optional taught units across the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law (including the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies and School for Policy Studies). Each is delivered within a 12-week teaching block and assessed by an essay (or equivalent form of written submission). This is followed in the summer term by a dissertation. Please note that some units will be delivered collaboratively with partner institutions and will require travel. Visit our programme catalogue for full details of the structure and unit content for our MRes in Security, Conflict and Human Rights.
