Research Groups


Historical Research Groups

PRIO’s long term research is organized in research groups that focus on core themes linked to the understanding of peace and conflict. These groups are the academic home of each researcher at PRIO and they all meet on a regular basis.

The Research Groups are an important element for fostering research collaboration across methodologies, disciplines and regional focus, but they also allow for a thematically organized overview of the people, projects, publications and events at PRIO.
