Description:The Research Group on Security, Risks Management and Conflicts gathers a number of researchers with different backgrounds (Law, Political Science, Psychology, Education and Neuroscience). Such diversity allows an approach of the vulnerability and conflictivity inherent to the current reality from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Conflicts have suffered a radical transformation regarding their main actors, settings, and intensity. A new school of thought is being developed on the means to avoid conflicts –such as the promotion of Human Rights and development–, and about the features of the conflicts themselves and their causes. Likewise, the interdisciplinarity of this research group allows for the rethinking and questioning of the rules and norms of Humanitarian Law, the management of post-conflict situations, and the construction of peace.
