The CRS was officially inaugurated in 1963 and promotes research and knowledge exchange about conflict processes and non-violent cooperation across national and international contexts.

The CRS has an international membership and presence, and brings together an active network of academics, practitioner and policy communities and others interested in the dynamics of violent political conflict.

The CRS is consciously multi-disciplinary and believes that providing a space for the sharing of ideas and approaches optimises our chance to develop comprehensive understandings of past, present and future conflicts.

The CRS aims to connect theoretical research to practice, and we are developing new platforms to enable a richer and more intensive sharing of these perspectives to take place.

If you would like to join the CRS or attend any of our events such as the Annual Conference, you can find further details on this website. Please get in touch if you would like to become further involved in the work of the Society.
