Peace and Conflict

Welcome to the website of the Peace and Conflict research cluster hosted by the Department of Politics of the University of Liverpool. The cluster brings together staff members and PhD students interested in international politics broadly defined, with expertise ranging from security and conflict to nationalism, international interventions and private security actors. Our cluster members regularly publish on these issues and engage with policy actors in order to share their expertise.


The current coordinator is Xavier Mathieu
