Function / Working area
The institution conducts and publishes research that aims at detecting the reasons and dimensions of armed violence and conflicts. This happens against the background of three central concerns: incorporation of programs for the reduction of violence in the public agenda; improvement of already existing programs; contribution to the design and evaluation of public measures that lead to the reduction of violence.
Currently, the institution has 5 research areas:
– Conflict analysis and political violence
– Measurement of violence and conflicts
– Armed violence and development
– Transition processes and overcoming of conflicts
– Companies and human rights
Interns can collaborate in all research areas.
The internship is geared towards students of careers like political science, sociology, peace/conflict studies, but also towards students with a background in statistics, mathematics, philology (translations) or communication. Interns will get a remuneration of approx. 250 € (USD 275) per month.
