"Cutting-edge research on conflict reduction and improved social cohesion."

The Newcastle-Oxford Research Centre for Conflict and Cohesion brings together a team  of internationally-renowned researchers who study ways to reduce prejudice and discrimination in society and increase a sense of belonging and wellness, with a focus on people who are members of disadvantaged groups. Led by Prof Miles Hewstone, the core members of the Centre are drawn from the distinguished institutes of psychology at Newcastle (ranked 4th in Australia) and Oxford (ranked 1st in UK, and 2nd in the world). Their work aims to overcome segregation that breeds mistrust and promote positive interactions between members of different ethnic, religious and other social groups.

The Centre is based in the School of Psychology at the University of Newcastle, Australia and in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford, UK. The Centre's researchers employ state-of-the-art research methods, including online surveys, longitudinal studies, psychophysiological measures, social network analyses, and multilevel modelling. We have access to over 500 research participants via the School of Psychology's Psychology Research Participant Pool.
