The project aims to create a comprehensive knowledge base to understand, trace and forecast, how armed conflict changes in various directions. The interdisciplinary team of researchers focuses its attention to five dimensions of change:

  • Actors involved in conflict,
  • Impact of conflict on civilians,
  • Environments in which conflict takes place,
  • Methods used in conflict,
  • and Resources that drive conflict.

Changes in violent conflict often appear bewildering and they remain under-researched. The Conflict Platform project provides a novel tool and language to analyse these changes in a nuanced and forward-looking manner.
