War Studies Research

We explore war and peace through societal, political, and military dimensions and debate issues related to social and military history.

What are the threats, risks and opportunities that military forces will face in the future? We seek to understand how climate change, rapid advances in technology, and unconventional forms of warfare are changing operational environments.


Bringing together international relations, political theory, and moral philosophy we debate and address ethical questions in international politics.

New advances in space technology and science potentially open up whole new worlds for humans to explore. However, not all innovation is positive, and even the development of ‘good’ technologies can have negative outcomes.
