The Conflict Research Society chose to hold its 50th Anniversary Conference at our Colchester Campus.

The interdisciplinary conference was opened by Professor Todd Landman, Executive Dean of our Faculty of Social Sciences, who has just published a new book called Human Rights and Democracy: The Precarious Triumph of Ideals.

High profile speakers included Professor Steven Pinker, from the Department of Psychology at Harvard University, who focused on human nature and the decline of war.

The conference also saw Professor Kristian Gleditsch from the Department of Government at Essex launch his new book Inequality, Grievances and Civil War.
