University of Stirling’s Centre for Policy, Conflict and Cooperation Research (CPCCR)

CPCCR (United Kingdom)

The University of Stirling’s Centre for Policy, Conflict and Cooperation Research (CPCCR) brings together academic expertise in policy, national and global security, international negotiation and diplomacy, and conflict and cooperation research.  The CPCCR follows two core research themes. First, we deliberately pursue a wide-lense inter-disciplinary approach to the conceptualisation of security and the analysis of conflict and cooperation.  Our members are thus drawn from the fields of politics and international relations, history, communications, media and culture, environmental and biological sciences, and law and philosophy, with honorary members further including former policy-makers and diplomats. Second, we address the interactions between theory and practice, policy-making and politics, to explore how conflict and cooperation occurs in very practical terms.  Our aim is for our research to therefore be informative, practical, and have real-world application.
