NCPACS Working Paper Series



The National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (NCPACS) is dedicated to innovative, high-impact research and teaching on the causes of violent conflict and the conditions for sustainable peace. In particular, it seeks to explore Aotearoa/New Zealand’s own experiences of Treaty partnership and engagement in international peacebuilding, the causes of intrastate and international armed conflict, and security, conflict resolution and post-conflict peacebuilding with special reference to the Asia-Pacific region – among other relevant subjects.

The NCPCS Working Paper Series highlights research currently underway within the Centre and its associated global community of peace researchers. It aims to share innovative peace-related research with a wide audience of academics, practitioners and policy-makers, and the general public.

The NCPCS welcomes submissions to the series on any subject related to peace and conflict studies, and from any academic discipline, as well as practice-based research and reflection. All papers accepted for publication are subject to a review process by the NCPCS Working Paper Editorial Committee. Papers published in the series face no copyright restrictions in relation to future publications.

Working Papers are available here in PDF format. Citations should include the author’s name, the date of publication, the paper title, The NCPCS Working Paper Series, and the paper’s web address.
