Researchers at the department have experience in conducting analyses and field research for a number of non-governmental and international organisations, and a variety of government ministries and authorities.

On a case-by-case basis some of the researchers at the department have accepted to mediate or to provide peace negotiation support in armed conflicts. Such engagements have occurred in both formal and in more informal (track-two) settings. 

Presentations and lectures have often been given in conjunction with ongoing projects for many different audiences. See the research and faculty and staff sections for more information about the research conducted at the department.
