INCORE drives forward interdisciplinary research and teaching uncovering and explaining the causes and consequence of conflict.

The work of INCORE, based at Ulster University, is highly applied in nature, aimed to support both policymakers as well as practitioners working within communities and civil society. Internationally, our research explores contexts where societies are confronting histories of violence, division, discrimination, abuse of power and associated policy challenges in regions such as the Balkans, Central Asia, the European Union, North America, the Middle East, South America, the South Pacific, and Southern Africa. This global orientation stems from the outstanding contribution research at the school has made to understandings of the conflict and peace process in Northern Ireland.
