Limerick, Ireland

The Centre for Peace and Development Studies is a multidisciplinary centre that brings together those working in the general areas of International Relations, International Development, Community Development, Conflict Studies, International Political Economy and Policy Studies. It is committed towards bringing scholars and practitioners who have a commitment towards the general framework of Peace and Development at the local, (inter)national and global levels. It fosters individual and collaborative research by creating a engagement with wide national and international networks through seminars and research partnerships. The centre looks to attract work from the Social Sciences and well as from Education and Business Schools but is located in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Limerick. It serves as an umbrella for the three research clusters held within the department and accommodates the MA programme in Peace and Development Studies.
