Research Center for Sustainable Peace (RCSP)

RCSP was established in April 2010 within the Institute for Advanced Global Studies (IAGS), the University of Tokyo.

RCSP has engaged in theoretical studies including the re-definition of the concept of peace, historical studies, field research in the areas of conflict, action research, and critical analysis of peace policies. Project of Compilation and Documentation on Refugees and Migrants (CDR), has been one of the main projects of RCSP.

Currently, RCSP conducts and hosts active and practical research into sustainable peace. Three pillars of activities are: refugees, human rights and International Humanitarian Law. A new ‘International Law Training and Research Hub‘ is created in order to bring in younger and early career researchers.
