Law and Conflict at Durham (LCD) is a cluster of researchers at Durham Law School interested in legal questions related to conflict, post and pre conflict situations and their impact upon global governance. LCD is an inclusive group, which encourages interdisciplinarity approaches to questions of governance and supports the research of its members, as well as operating as a framework for the organisation of events and projects. Members of LCD pursue a diverse range of interests and approaches, and contribute to the development of knowledge and policy at the highest level. LCD works closely with the Law School's other research Centres and Clusters, with which it shares several members.
LCD encourages strong applications to undertake research degrees, either PhD or Mjur, in these fields. For all admissions queries, please contact email@example.com
