Research Group on Security, Risks Management and Conflict


Description and Research topics

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.

Research Lines:

  • Security issues, risk and conflict analysis. The psychology of violence.
  • The transformation of war: Challenges to the global society and diversification of actors. Terrorism.
  • New security and defence spaces: oceans, space and cyberspace.
  • Relation between conflicts and human rights.
  • European Union: Security, Defense and Resilience.
  • Adjudication, Mediation, arbitration and conciliation: alternative strategies for conflict resolution.
  • International Humanitarian Law.
  • Conflict Management and Peace Building. Peace Operations. Peacekeeping. Postconflict Management. Operational Law.
