Conflict Research Group (CRG)

logo-crg-200.jpg The CRG research concentrates on the rise of violence and armed conflicts in the global periphery, focusing both on the links between local and global dimensions of conflict and on the impact of these conflicts on local societies. Within this scope, the CRG hopes to offer a valuable contribution to the theory and practice of conflict resolution and post-war reconstruction.
