The Peace, War, & Social Conflict Laboratory started in 2017 as a research collaborative effort between faculty and students at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2018 the PWSCL moved to Texas Tech University. The PWSCL mission is to provide a space for interdisciplinary, policy-related research on issues in Peace, War, and Social Conflict. Today the PWSCL is a hub of excellence that allows students to earn research-related skills and experience on high-impact topics. 


Join our lab project for the coming semester. During the 2024 Fall, we will explore the mercenaries and the outsourcing of security around the world.
