Cambridge Peace and Education Research Group (CPERG)
The Cambridge Peace and Education Research Group (CPERG) provides a hub for research students and faculty members at the University of Cambridge to exchange ideas and collaborate on projects that explore the relationships between conflict, peace, and education, both in the UK and internationally. Through its activities, CPERG aims to stimulate connections amongst theory, research and practice. CPERG is officially affiliated with the Knowledge, Power, and Politics research cluster at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge.
CPERG was initiated in 2011 as a post-graduate special interest group. Since that time the group has organized a number of activities including regular seminars, a Conflict and Peace conference, a new route MPhil working group, and consultancy applications to international education and development agencies.
