The Centre consists of a unique blend of academics and practitioners who ensure that our range of products and services are of direct relevance and benefit to those involved in the development of secure and resilient societies.

Our activities are primarily focused on state and peace building, governance, resilience and justice.

Staff at the Centre apply rigorous academic thought to practical issues. Collectively, we have global reach and impact, having delivered projects in more than 30 countries worldwide.

Each of these projects is designed to meet clearly identified requirements from either public or private institutions, and is informed by the academic research base of the Centre.
