MRes Security, Conflict and Human Rights
This programme is one of five interdisciplinary pathways that are delivered as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP).
The programme recognises social scientific research on security, conflict and human rights from different disciplines, and how different approaches treat these issues. The programme moves beyond traditional approaches to security studies to complement these with wider perspectives, such as human (in)security, including domestic insecurity and violence, to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice.
We equip researchers with the interdisciplinary skills to impact the research, policy and practice as needed to avoid and mitigate security risks.
The research training units Introduction to Quantitative Research Methods in the Social Sciences and Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods in the Social Sciences run a number of times across the faculty. Students may request to take whichever unit best fits their timetable, but requests are subject to space constraints.
Optional units can be taken at the Universities of Bristol, Bath or Exeter. Options vary from year to year but may include the following units available at Bristol:
Over the summer you will complete a research-based dissertation of up to 15,000 words, individually supervised by a member of staff from the school.
