In addition to ameliorating conflict through field programs and offering conflict-related coursework at Texas A&M University, ConDev also conducts strenuous research. ConDev’s network of students and partners generates a variety of papers and presentations, featured below, while ConDev’s elite team of researchers known as the Strategic Analytics Laboratory focuses on tackling the more theoretical, data-intensive aspects of conflict research.
