International Conflicts, Cooperation and Use of Power
International Conflicts, Cooperation and Use of Power
Our Department continues to develop research into armed conflicts, international cooperation, foreign policy and security policy. Our research in this field relates to studies of political institutions, the use of military force, terrorism, nonviolent resistance and social movements, but also to climate and political developments in societies that have suffered civil wars. The research community has long had close cooperation with PRIO – The Peace Research Institute in Oslo. This Cooperation also encompasses The Research School on Peace and Conflict where University of Oslo also is a partner.
