18-19th September 2017 Pembroke College Oxford

Our annual conference will be hosted by the Changing Character of War programme at Pembroke College, University of Oxford. The conference theme is ‘Ending Violence in Turbulent Times: Exploring the Conflict, Peace and Violence Nexus.’

The conference seeks to generate debate and relationships between scholars and practitioners interested in key issues surrounding the dynamics of violent political conflict, dialogue, diplomacy and peacebuilding. The conference will continue its tradition of multi-disciplinary focus and is open to the full range of quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches to the subject.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Professor Lars-Erik Cedermann, Professor of International Conflict Research at the ETH-Institute, Zurich.

We have a keynote panel of eminent Oxford academics: Professor Sir Adam Roberts, Professor Richard Caplan and Dr Anke Hoeffler, on thetheme: Civil resistance, violent conflict and post-conflict reconstruction. There will also be panels on Interventions for Protecting Civilians in Armed Conflict and Political Dimensions of Peacekeeping and Domestic Security.
