Recognised as study group in 1988; granted research committee status in 1999; changed name from "Role of the Military in Democratization" to "Security, Conflict and Democratization" in April 2018.


Examines the processes, content and consequences of military interventions in the political systems of third world countries. Military interventions have been a characteristic feature of these countries over the last 30 years or so. In the mid 1980s there was general public revulsion against the culture of military rule, particularly in Latin America.

All these developments created an intellectual sphere which necessitated research in order to examine these processes of democratisation and their consequences. The political economy of military regimes, crisis in civil military relations and the role of military in nascent democracies have also been incorporated as areas of research.
