iCRiSP Research theme: Conflict and crisis management
Research topic
Comment: Departing from theories and concepts from social conflict and group dynamics, research focuses on the management of safety-related conflict and crisis incidents. Research is directed at the actual interactions between the authorities and civilians, and includes for example hostage incidents, interrogation situations, as well as the management of escalated situations in problematic neighbourhoods. We also study higher level and often complex, high stake, decision making processes surrounding conflict and crisis incidents, and the effectiveness of different types of third-party intervention in escalated conflict situations (e.g. court-connected or community mediation). Another challenge for future research is to examine the need for and effectiveness of specific leadership and facilitative interventions in conflict and crisis situations.
