INSTITUTE FOR CONFLICT STUDIES AND RESOLUTION STRATEGIES

WHO WE ARE

The Institute for Conflict Studies & Resolution Strategies (ICS) is located in the Punjab, India, and Northern Ireland, UK, in association with the Cordia Educational Complex of Punjabi University, and the Institute for Conflict Research (INCORE), at the School of Criminology, Politics, & Social Policy, Ulster University.

The ICS is inspired by the 2007 report of the Commonwealth Commission on Respect and Understanding, ‘Civil Paths to Peace’, edited by Amartya Sen.   It offers a means for Commonwealth members to demonstrate practically their endorsement of the Report’s recommendations.

The ICS is constituted as a not-for-profit, charitable trust registered in both the United Kingdom and India.
