The Centre for Trust, Peace, and Social Relations (CTPSR) has over 60 full-time research staff supported by a team of professional support staff. Our staff are extremely well-connected and are called upon to contribute their expertise on the national and international stage, as advisers to governments and international bodies or at conferences worldwide. Our research is organised around the following themes:

  • Communities, Politics and Identity;
  • Faith and Peaceful Relations;
  • Global Inequalities and Development;
  • Peacebuilding and Conflict Transformation;
  • Security, Vulnerability and Resilience;
  • Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (including domestic extremism and religious extremism).

We invite PhD proposals that fit into one of these themes, that challenge existing ideas in any of these areas and expand current thinking, offering original insights and approaches by undertaking significant and rigorous research.

Details of the Research Groups can be found here.  We strongly encourage candidates to make direct contact with a potential supervisor to discuss their proposal before submitting a formal application. Contact details can be found through the above link.
