Welcome from the Director


0120 Ms Stefanie Kappler

The Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies is proud to bring together academics who work on issues related to peace and conflict from a variety of perspectives. The Centre promotes the benefit of drawing on interdisciplinary approaches to shed light on the multidimensional challenges that are faced by deeply divided societies.

We aim to promote cooperation between academics to enable innovative and original research projects and outputs. At the same time, we believe in the importance of linking academic research to the lived realities of societies emerging from conflict. The Centre therefore aims to strengthen the links between theory and practice, inviting academics and practitioners alike to engage in its diverse activities.

The Centre views itself as a platform of constructive and interdisciplinary engagement. If you are interested in cooperating with us, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We encourage academics, practitioners, PhD students and the interested public to become involved in the activities of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies. Not only the Centre, but also Liverpool Hope University as well as Liverpool itself provide a stimulating and inspiring work environment.

I invite you to learn more about us and would like to welcome you to our Centre.

Dr Stefanie Kappler
