Centre for Conflict, Security and Terrorism (CST)

Welcome to the Centre for Conflict, Security and Terrorism (CST)

The Centre for Conflict, Security and Terrorism (CST) was established in 2011 and forms a major national research centre investigating contemporary security issues.

CST promotes the study of security politics within the UK and internationally, and is comprised of 18 staff and research students both within the School of Politics and International Relations, and further afield.

All CST conferences and meetings are now online. We have also welcomed external (non-UoN) online participants and have increased our event attendance numbers as a result.

CST is focused on adhering to EDI best practices, particularly when it comes to diversity guidance in our conferences and meetings invitations. This has been in evidence during our two major events organised for this term.

Postgraduate research students are warmly encouraged to attend and contribute to meetings/conferences.  

CST would like to cooperate and collaborate with other organisations interested in research into contemporary security issues. Please contact us if you are interested in the topics of our research or if you are a student interested in postgraduate study (MA, PhD).
