>> applied security and conflict analysis
The EPCentre’s own Centre for Applied Security and Conflict Analysis is serving two main tasks: Applied Analysis for its practical work and Innovative Research on new security issues and conflict resolution. The Centre hereby focuses in applied policy research, based on concrete issues and cases, developing analytical profiles to allow for key actor assessments, grievances and obstacles, strategic foresight and applied models for problem-solving.
In so doing, we prioritise methodology over ready-made explanatory models and theoretical frameworks. Since policy knowledge is becoming increasingly specialised, the EPCentre is seeking to bring together issue and regional specialists as well as cross-regional expertise in order to achieve informed and applicable policy analysis.
