The Conflict Analysis Research Centre (CARC) "at the University of Kent is a multi-disciplinary and multi-site Faculty Research Centre. It is based in the Department of Politics and International Relations but can draw on the expertise of other Departments such as History, Anthropology, the School of Social Policy and Social Science Research, Law, Health Sciences, and the Kent Business School...

"The Conflict Analysis Research Centre takes over from the Center for Conflict and Peace and its forerunner the Centre for the Analysis of Conflict , which was started in 1966 as an inter-university research project working on conflict issues in Malaysia & Singapore, Cyprus, Northern Ireland, Lebanon and South Africa, under the guidance of pioneering academics such as John W. Burton, John Groom, Christopher Mitchell, and Keith Webb. Under Andy Williams, the centre used its Track II negotiation, mediation and diplomatic skills in working with parties in Moldova, Europe's poorest country, to resolve trade and transit differences with Moldova's break-away Transdniestr Region, which remains under the supervision of the 56-nation Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)."
