Research Division

International Politics and Conflict Resolution 

We research international relations

Our division focuses on international relations, spanning topics from conflict, peace, and security to international political economy.

A distinctive feature of our orientation is an emphasis on the commonalities between all forms of politics, whether within states or between states, and the interrelationship between international relations and domestic politics and institutions.

For example, we analyse foreign policy decision making, multilateral military cooperation, conflict resolution techniques such as mediation and international peacekeeping, civil wars, failed states, and terrorism, international development, international security and international political economy.
