Conflict Research Group


The Conflict Research Group (CRG) is a multi-disciplinary research and consultancy unit. Its members include leading experts in conflict-related research from five of LSE's academic departments, including Government, International Relations, Sociology, the Methodology Institute, and the European Institute.

The CRG provides expertise on the causes and dynamics of violent conflict, and the policy responses to it, whether in democratic or authoritarian states.

Our activities are supported by the LSE Department of Government.
