Security, Conflict and Justice

This interdisciplinary programme examines the latest critical thinking and the key issues surrounding the field of security studies; exploring new ways to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice. It recognises that traditional approaches to this subject must now be complemented with new perspectives on issues such as human (in)security, domestic security and violence. Units contributing to this programme will draw on sociological and socio-legal research on topics that include: human rights, gender, violence and ethnopolitics; area studies' expertise on language, culture and practice; and political and legal research on sovereignty, institutions and intervention and how these fields affect elements of security, conflict and justice. The MRes in Security, Conflict and Justice will equip you with interdisciplinary skills which will have an impact on the research, policy and practice needed to avoid and mitigate security risks. The programme is designed to provide research training for students who will progress to a PhD and for those who want to pursue careers with a significant research element. This programme has been accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as part of the South West Doctoral Training Centre.
