Callaghan Centre blocks

The Callaghan Centre for the Study of Conflict was established in 2002.  It is one of two flagship Research Centres of the Research Institute for Arts and Humanities.  The Centre groups a large number of scholars and postgraduate students with research expertise in the areas of conflict and war studies.

It produces world-class research, manages major Research Council funded projects, and promotes collaboration between scholars, policy-makers, cultural providers and research institutions, such as the Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, the Centre for the Study of the Second World War at Florida State University, and the International Brigades Memorial Trust.
