With expertise across a range of thematic and geographic perspectives, RUSI’s work on violence reflects the complex, multi-dimensional nature of contemporary conflict.

Alongside an annual conference on peacekeeping, we focus on conflict detection and other analytical work conducted across different regions. We also assess the experiences and implications of conflict through a gender lens; consider how different iterations of militancy, including violent extremism, emerge and intersect with wider conflict environments; investigate decentralised forms of violence in state peripheries and across national borders; and assess local, state, institutional and international approaches to conflict prevention, resolution and longer-term recovery.
