Note on Staff

As is the case with other research centres in the University, the Director of the Centre was a permanent member of staff who had been seconded to oversee the management of the Centre. The research staff of the Centre were emplyed on a fixed-term basis. Most of these were full-time researchers supported by external grants, usually for between one and three years. A small number of shorter contracts were also awarded, these involved either a pump-priming exercise in preparation for a larger project or a supplement to the work of other projects.

There were a number of changes among the research staff of the Centre between 1994 and 1997. A number of previous staff members moved to research and teaching posts within the University of Ulster and to other Universities. As new research proposals were funded new members of staff had been employed and the complement of research staff had risen to previous levels.

Former Directors of the Centre for the Study of Conflict:

John Darby (1985-1991)
