Defence and post-war studies: education, research and training


The College has developed a unique academic-military partnership with the British Armed Services in the delivery of world-class education and training. It sustains an extensive network of international contacts and engages in contract research for a number of government departments and international organisations. It has developed a broad interdisciplinary approach that takes in military history and ethics as well as issues of defence and international security. Undergraduate and postgraduate courses are not only concerned with ‘War studies’ but also with conflict prevention and resolution, peacekeeping missions and humanitarian assistance in complex social and political settings.
