TAPRI's Research Profile

TAPRI research is based on the Scandinavian as well as on the broader European tradition of peace research. The overarching goal is to study the root causes of wars and conflicts, conflict cycles and the preconditions of conflict resolution and durable peace. Research is inter- and trans-disciplinary and it uses theories and methods from a variety of academic disciplines. Research is also international.

TAPRI research areas deal with problems caused by structural violence both within and between states, conflict management and conflict resolution including peace and mediation processes as well as post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation. Research themes include peacebuilding, post-conflict societal arrangements, peaceful third party interventions, civilian crises management and the prerequisites of durable peace. Research uses systemic approaches when appropriate, but does not shy away from the mundane and everyday dimensions of war and peace. Thematic research areas consist of research question that concern, for example, ethnic and nationalistic conflicts; issues related to borders and boundaries; human mobility; environmental and developmental conflicts; the gendered nature of peace and war; and post-conflict reconciliation including remembrance, post-conflict justice, ethics and recognition. The research designs use innovative research methods and diverse research materials. In line with the strategy of the University of Tampere, TAPRI research produces critical knowledge and is committed to peaceful change. It bears policy relevance too.

TAPRI’s research activities take place in research projects that vary in their scope and duration.
