Organisation profile

Established in 1959, the peace research centre at Lancaster was the first in Britain, and one of the first in the world. It has always been dedicated to pioneering research in peace and conflict studies, in the spirit of the Quaker scientist, Lewis Fry Richardson.

We are a research centre within the Department of Politics, Philosophy & Religion at Lancaster University. We are committed to undertaking relevant, ethical and focused projects. The Institute has a friendly and informal atmosphere and encourages participation and originality.
