Course content

The Universities of Exeter, Bristol and Bath have created the South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC) which draws together the established research excellence of academic and research staff at the three institutions.

The Security, Conflict and Human Rights programme is an interdisciplinary pathway, which recognises that traditional approaches to security studies must now be complemented with new perspectives of issues such as human (in)security more widely, including domestic insecurity and violence, in order to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice. It will train researchers who are equipped with the interdisciplinary skills to impact the research, policy and practice needed to avoid and mitigate security risks.
