The Essex Armed Conflict and Crisis Hub are proud to host members with a diverse and multidisciplinary approach to current issues related to armed conflict and crises. From seeking accountability for violations in current armed conflict to examining the historical impact of war, our expertise spans humanitarian law, social work, human rights, political science, refugee protection, media studies, history, international law and more.
Students can get involved in a range of Hub projects, including being trained to verify videos and photos in the Digital Verification Unit, or working on a conflict-related project in the Human Rights Clinic. The Hub also runs regular seminars and events for students on contemporary topics related to armed conflict and crisis.
"Essex, importantly, grounds its research and projects in the realities of armed conflict. I am very pleased to collaborate with members of the Essex Armed Conflict and Crisis Hub on work that focuses on practical and credible solutions to today’s complex challenges in armed conflict."
This research project initiated by the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights seeks to elucidate the scope and practical application of investigations in armed conflict, and establish the ways in which States can best carry these out.
