Welcome to the Richardson Institute

Established in 1959, the peace research centre at Lancaster was the first in Britain, and one of the first in the world. It has always been dedicated to pioneering research in peace and conflict studies, in the spirit of the Quaker scientist, Lewis Fry Richardson.

Based within the Department of Politics, Philosophy & Religion (PPR) at the University of Lancaster, the Richardson Institute is committed to undertaking cutting-edge 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.
