European Union Research on Human Rights, Conflicts and Securityin the 6th FP and first period of 7th FP, Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities Programme

Funded under: FP7-SSH

Abstract

War and peace are as old as humankind, and violation to human dignity and integrity also - but their shapes, causes, impacts keep changing over time and in different contexts. This is surely also the present case - with factors such as globalisation, pace of technology, new geopolitical landscapes and new actors (private and public) contributing to change the way conflicts arise and are dealt with and human rights are perceived and acted upon.
Such developments need to be accompanied by analysis: independent, pluralistic and accurate knowledge is essential to inform policy and public debate. It is thus important that research on those issues be included and fostered in the context of EU research, and this publication provides a sort of easy "Vademecum" of research conducted in the 6th and first phase of the 7th Framework Research Programme (with some projects also in the 5th Framework). Hopefully this can help in both making such research better known and used for policy and debate, and can help identify gaps and future challenges to be addressed.
