Welcome to the Richardson Institute

The Richardson Institute is the oldest Peace Studies centre in the UK and was established in 1959 in the spirit of the Quaker scientist, Lewis Fry Richardson. The Richardson Institute is an inter-disciplinary forum for research on peace and conflict.

Based within the Department of Politics, Philosophy & Religion (PPR) at the University of Lancaster, the Richardson Institute is committed to undertaking contemporary research as well as outreach activities with the aim of contributing to the University's excellence as a leading research and knowledge transfer institution in Britain.

Our vision is to be internationally recognised as a world class partner of choice for universities, research centres and civil society stakeholders on peace and conflict research and knowledge transfer activities.
