Changing Character of War Centre

Changing Character of War Center has been examining the developments of armed conflict and its consequences since 2003. The centre brings together scholars from multiple disciplines, especially history, politics, international relations, law, and philosophy.

Changing Character of War Centre (CCW) is based in the multi-disciplinary environment of Pembroke College. It collaborates with researchers in anthropology, psychology and economics, as well as several Oxford centres of excellence such as the Centre for International Studies, Centre for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict, Oxford Internet Institute and Blavatnik School of Government. As a result of the significance of new technologies in armed conflicts today CCW also takes an interest in computer science, mathematics and engineering. We examine change, through the analysis of practice, conceptual development, and the theoretical foundations.
