Research group

The PEACE research group conducts research that is interdisciplinary, reflecting the importance of different analytical approaches and methods to understand and respond to complex social phenomena related to peace and conflict. In particular our research seek to understand the processes that bring societies together, and on ways in which peace can be built, maintained and spread. Many of the processes that aim to achieve or sustain peace often tend to exclude local communities. The PEACE research group focuses on local ownership and participation in peace processes, perspectives from below. How individuals, groups and nations navigate their way in divided societies.
