This unique Conflict, Development and Security programme gives you the opportunity to study regionally differentiated responses to conflict in, for example Africa and Afghanistan, and to discuss issues relating to humanitarian conditionality, containment and the role of international organisations and NGOs.
Our academics are widely recognised as leading experts in their field. The research-led teaching youll benefit from is directly informed by the cutting-edge research that occurs within the interdisciplinary Centre for Global Development, which involves more than 60 academics from across the University, as well as the Leeds University Centre for African Studies (LUCAS), an interdisciplinary centre that brings together scholars with an active interest in Africa from across different schools and faculties at the University of Leeds.
Colleagues working in the International Relations and Security research group participate in research clusters on The Responsibility to Protect and Prosecute and Contemporary Democracy and Authoritarianism as well as the Middle East Research Group.
