Current research & consultancy projects#

Mats Berdal has recently completed Building Peace after War (Routledge for IISS, 2009), a critical assessment of international efforts, from Cambodia to Iraq, to consolidate peace in the aftermath of war. This was recently followed up with the publication of a jointly edited volume, Ending Wars, Consolidating Peace: Economic Perspectives (Routledge for IISS, 2010). Together with Astri Suhrke (CMI, Bergen) he is overseeing the completion of a major research project on post-war violence. An edited volume resulting from the project - The Peace in Between: Post-War Violence and Peacebuilding - will be published in 2011.

His other principal research project at the moment is a major study of the UN and the end of the Cold War, a book that covers the immediate post-Cold War period and focuses in particular on the UN's involvement in the mitigation, containment and resolution of civil wars. Recent writings have focused on developments at the UN since the start of the war in Iraq in 2003; NATO at 60 and the political economy of armed conflict. Other research interests include violence in post-conflict societies, the changing character of war, the evolution of NATO, developments in UN peacekeeping and Philip Windsor's contribution to the study of International Relations, in particular his ideas on strategy and war. Berdal also retains a long standing interest in the history of the Cold War.
