Based in the Department of Political Science at University College London (UCL), the Conflict & Change group contributes to the scientific understanding of political violence.

Pursuing systematic and empirically informed research, the group brings together scholars analyzing the causes, dynamics, and consequences of political conflicts.

Sharing a focus on systematic analysis of theoretically-informed and policy-relevant questions, our research draws on a diverse spectrum of methods—from disaggregated large-N analysis and forecasting to fieldwork-based case studies and normative theory.

Thematically, the groups draws together experts on armed groups, civil wars and their external involvement, dynamics of mobilization,  ethnic cleansing, post-war state-building,  power-sharing and decentralization, reconciliation, and repression and human rights.

If you are an academic or researcher and would like to present to our group, contact us.
