Interdisciplinary Research Methods Working Group

The Interdisciplinary Research and Methods Working Group works on compiling and publishing the OICD’s core theory and research methodology.

The interdisciplinary team combines knowledge from anthropology, psychology, neuroscience, political science, international relations, and development, and other related fields, in order to apply this knowledge to innovative real-world programming in the conflict transformation and peace building space.

The group’s academic output will help to concisely articulate the core OICD approach to the field of conflict and peace studies, summarizing the key theoretical and methodological bases that the Organization relies on for its real world programming.
