Publishing with a purpose
Conflict, security, peace and migration
The United Nations and the United Nations Charter were created to save future generations from the scourge of war, as seen by its founders who lived through two world wars. Social challenges around conflict, peacekeeping and the consequences of these, including migration, define our time.
The books and journal articles we publish in this area focus on the impact of vast power differentials and the issues that need to be addressed as a threat to human rights and international security, including conflict based migration and political instability.
Our aim is to publish innovative research that supports finding ways to protect groups that can be an easy target for violence and discrimination.
