The Working Group is a student-led initiative that aims to facilitate research into the causes, character and consequences of armed conflict. The group serves as a forum for students and researchers to discuss their own work and developments in the field, and as a meeting point to find areas of mutual interest and opportunities for collaboration and cooperation. 

Interdisciplinary in outlook and open to diverse theoretical and methodological approaches, the group is for anyone interested in advancing the study of armed conflict, civil war and related issues such as peace building and post-war reconstruction. Participants in the group come from many Oxford departments, including Politics and International Relations, International Development, Sociology, and History.

The Working Group meets on Friday mornings at 9am during term time in Pembroke College.Meetings will be listed on the CCW events page. For more details, and to receive discussion papers, please contact Nicholas Barker on nicholas.barker@nuffield.ox.ac.uk
