Contemporary Organized Violence

Organised violence in the 21st Century may take the form of classical inter-state conflict or civil war, or may represent hybrid forms. It is vital to understand the nature of contemporary organized violence as well as the conditions of post-conflict stability. The Department excels in expertise on the role of international organisations, NGOs, private military companies and warlords in such situations.
