Partnership (including discrete research projects) through role as Non-resident fellow at United Nations University Centre for Policy Research

Following a period as a visiting fellow, Dr Hunt is now a non-resident fellow at the United Nations University Centre for Policy Research (UNU-CPR) in New York.

UNU-CPR is an independent think tank within the UN system that combines research excellence with deep knowledge of the multilateral system to generate innovative solutions to current and future global public policy challenges.

Dr Hunt is aligned with CPR's 'preventing violent conflict' program which aims to help the UN and its partners develop and implement effective, evidence-based policies to prevent violent conflict around the world. The goal is to combine evidence and analysis to influence policy discussions in New York and other policy centres and – equally or even more importantly – inform prevention and conflict resolution initiatives in the field.

Project timeline: 2019 – ongoing

Key contributors: Charles T. Hunt
