Meet the team

Our core project team is based at the Conflict and Civil Society Research Unit (CCSRU) at the London School of Economics and Political Science and is led by Dr Rim Turkmani with support from Professor Mary Kaldor, head of the Unit. We also have team members in the region and in Europe. The project also benefits from the vision and advice of an advisory board of senior academics, policy, media and expert figures.
