Conflict, Stability & Security
By 2030 almost half of the world’s poor are expected to live in countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence, and addressing this problem is a core concern of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The challenges of conflict, instability and insecurity are widespread and not at all confined to low-income countries. The last few years have seen a spike in conflicts with an increase in civilian casualties and almost 60 million people are presently displaced globally – the highest level since the end of World War II.
The various projects which we carry out as part of this theme provide policy-relevant, cross-regional and interdisciplinary insights into issues related, but not limited, to: the root causes of conflict, conflict prevention, management and peacebuilding; fragile, rogue and deep states; migration and displacement; understanding violence; military and humanitarian aid interventions; as well as the effectiveness of international coalitions and agreements.
