About

The Security, Conflict and Human Rights programme offered by the University of Bristol is an interdisciplinary pathway. It explicitly recognises that traditional approaches to security and conflict must encompass different disciplinary perspectives on issues of human (in)security to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and protecting human rights.

Overview

The Security, Conflict and Human Rights programme offered by the University of Bristol  is one of five South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP) interdisciplinary pathways delivered in partnership with the Universities of Bath and Exeter.

Globalisation has altered the security environment, and violence has shifted from organised inter-state war to protracted warfare fought by non-state actors and local militias as well as state militaries. Climate change, forced migration, gender-based violence, radicalisation, humanitarian emergencies, terrorism and WMD proliferation have - to varying degrees - been securitised by states, intergovernmental institutions and non-governmental organisations. This broadening of the global security agenda has highlighted the limits of existing local, regional and global responses to these new challenges, and although human rights are codified within international law, their implementation is often inhibited.

This PhD responds directly to these challenges and equips researchers with the interdisciplinary skills required to shape the research, policy and practice needed to prevent conflict and mitigate security risks.

Students will normally be registered in the school of their first supervisor. This may not be the school that processes your application.

Careers

The PhD in Security, Conflict and Human Rights offers useful preparation for a number of careers. Our students go on to employment in areas of academia, international security, development and conflict issues, the Department for International Development, policy researchers, consultants, policy civil servants or the military.
