The Security, Conflict and Human Rights programme from University of Bristol recognises social scientific research on security, conflict and human rights from different disciplines, and how different approaches treat these issues. The programme moves beyond traditional approaches to security studies to complement these with wider perspectives, such as human (in)security, including domestic insecurity and violence, to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice.
We equip researchers with the interdisciplinary skills to impact research, policy and practice to avoid and mitigate security risks.
The MRes in Security, Conflict and Human Rights offers useful preparation for a number of careers. Foremost, the MRes is the academic basis and preparation for students choosing the 1+3 programme (the first year is the MRes and the +3 the PhD).
The programme emphasises ESRC-accredited research methods training, the ability to plan, research and write a sophisticated dissertation, and the ability to think in broad theoretical and interdisciplinary terms about challenging issues. These provide an ideal introduction to academic research and to working for NGOs.
It would be of interest to anyone pursuing a career path in international security, development and conflict issues, international development departments of government, policy research, consultancy, the civil service or the military.
