Cambridge Post-Conflict & Post-Crisis Research Group
Societies emerging from a natural disaster, armed conflict or acute social and economic crisis share similar characteristics: insecurity, uncertainty, violence, increase in poverty, displacement of people, loss of life, organized crime, trauma, physical destruction. They also share needs: reestablishing rule of law, stabilizing the economy, rebuilding, conflict mitigation and prevention, integrate traumatic events, inscribing and negotiating memories, strengthening civil society, reconciliation, nation building and identity, etc.
Within the University of Cambridge, research is being done on these issues by a wide range of different researchers working in several different departments. These researchers have come together to form the Cambridge Post-Conflict and Post-Crisis (PCPC) Group.
The Group is committed to establishing working relations and opening communication channels with both civil society, policy makers and practitioners within governmental, non-governmental and international organizations.
