The Changing Character of War Programme at Oxford University

The Oxford CCW Programme is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of war and armed conflict. Some 11 titles have now been published in the CCW series at Oxford University Press, including The Changing Character of War (2011). Based at Pembroke College, we conduct research on a wide range of issues pertaining to the history of war in the modern period, and seek to be ‘policy-relevant’ to more recent conflicts through elucidation, explication and education. In 2013-14, our research priorities are the changing relationship between war and the state, war in a connected world, conventional and unconventional warfare, civilians in war, the history of the laws of war and the moral dimensions of war. The CCW programme welcomes Visiting Research Fellows who wish to contribute to our research themes, and seeks the participation of practitioners by bringing to Oxford representatives of the armed services, of governments and of multinational organisations, to engage in research projects, conferences and seminars.

The term card of events including all events in Trinity Term 2014 is available here. If you join our mailing list you can receive it at the beginning of each term on the ‘occasional’ list, or sign up for weekly updates on our seminars and other interesting events on the ‘frequent’ list.
