Conflict & Security

The Conflict and Security Cluster research focuses on the links between minority issues, conflict and security, with the aim to identify and prevent security threats in ethnically and culturally diverse contexts and to reduce conflict emergence.  

The Cluster works on human security, minority rights and protection, as well as competing discourses of conflict in the new era security challenges. Our research aims to approach contemporary challenges faced by minority groups in a novel way and to strengthen our understanding of their agency and broader power dynamics in diverse societies.
