Conflict, Security and Cooperation

Our theme ‘Conflict, Security and Cooperation’ includes research on post-conflict societies and democratisation, linking in particular to research and impact activities in the area of power-sharing and federalism. This theme also incorporates research on foreign policy in general and in relation to specific areas of staff expertise (i.e. EU, energy security, the politics of space).

Our research in this area focuses on EU foreign policy analysis, energy security, identity building, and the concept of sovereignty.
