Established in 2016, the Center for Conflict and Humanitarian Studies (CHS) is an independent research center that generates scholarship and engages in policy and practice on conflict mediation, humanitarian action, and post-conflict recovery in the Arab world and beyond.
At the center we seek to contribute towards the enablement of sustainable recovery in conflict-affected societies and ultimately to achieve a world free from conflict and crisis. CHS research is driven by values of independence, interdisciplinarity, and intellectual rigor. By linking theory, policy, and practice in our engagement, we develop knowledge networks with constructive impact at local, national, and international levels.
CHS works collaboratively with leading research organizations to inform evidence-based approaches to conflict response. We also work with key stakeholders concerned with humanitarian action and peacemaking to facilitate multi-track dialogues, engage in mutual learning, and build common ground.
