The Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security (ICCS) was established at the University of Birmingham in February 2012. Its key purpose is to promote a multidisciplinary approach to the security challenges that arise from global interconnectedness. These security challenges pose theoretical and practical questions relating to the possibilities of reducing the risks of violent conflict, as well as developing cooperation and trust, both regionally and globally.
The ICCS aims to produce cutting-edge, internationally renowned research, which has a significant impact on the key practitioner communities with which it engages. The Institute also offers top-quality postgraduate training through its newly inaugurated Master’s degree in Global Cooperation and Security. This research-led teaching is supported by work in the following thematic areas:
