Welcome to the Conflict Analysis and Resolution Information Services (CARIS) website. The purpose of CARIS is to understand armed conflict in the world today and how it can be brought to an end. CARIS is intended both for anyone who wishes to learn about conflict analysis and resolution and the more experienced researcher who wishes to explore new ideas.

This website has no political, religious or ideological affiliation outside of the goal of conflict resolution and acts as independent resource centre. It is also a gateway to the wider community of conflict analysis and resolution with the recommendation that the user is encouraged to take a critical stance by balancing arguments and reaching their own conclusions.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this introduction and please share our services with others.
