As a peace research institute, swisspeace scientists seek to understand the causes of wars and violent conflicts and to formulate conflict mitigation and peacebuilding strategies.
Research at swisspeace aims to lay the ground for policy-making in peacebuilding on the one hand, and to contribute to academic debates on peace and conflict research as well as to the dissemination of results towards practice on the other.
Besides policy relevance, inter- and transdisciplinary approaches based on partnerships with academics worldwide, particularly in the South, are key principles of research at swisspeace.
