Research Week: Conflict, Co-operation and Human Security Workshop
Thu 20 April 2017, 15:30 – 16:30 BST
***Please note that Research Week is an Internal event for Univeristy of Stirling staff only***
This workshop is intended to explore research synergies across Faculties relating to the theme of Conflict, Co-operation and Security.
Led by Professor Holger Nehring.
Most research in international relations remains focused on security issues, mainly in the context of military questions and national intelligence. In line with more recent discussions about broader concepts of security, our Centre for Policy, Conflict and Co-operation Research seeks to broaden the debate to consider conflict and co-operation more broadly, in both international and domestic society. We seek to bring together international and domestic politics and history, policy making and theory, as well as the advancement of professional practice and theoretical developments. We are especially interested in conflicts over environmental and natural resources and their impact on issues relating to human security, human rights and well being. Key network members: Nils Bunnefeld (FNS), Clemens Hoffmann (FAH), Phyllis Lee (FNS), Matias Margulis (FAH), Heather Price (FNS), Andrea Schapper (FAH).
This session also serves to encourage interest, discussion and consideration of the Home, Conflict & Security Dragons' Den Research Programme. If youa re interested to know more about this research programme, please jojn Holger and his Programme team, Professor Phyllis Lee (co-co-ordinator), Heather Price, Clemens Hoffmann and Andrea Schapper for this workshop.
