Understanding the diverse causes and impacts of conflict

The Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society

One of UNB's distinguished research centres, The Milton F. Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society is devoted to excellence in the study of war as a complex social phenomenon. With the goal of increasing understanding of the cause, course, and consequence of armed conflict, the Gregg Centre is internationally recognized for its graduate program, undergraduate and graduate teaching, public outreach, popular and scholarly publications, and its expertise in all aspects of modern conflict.

In the 1970s UNB developed an innovative and academically rigorous approach to teaching and writing military history. In 1980 UNB established Canada's first research centre and scholarly journal devoted to the study of terrorism and low intensity conflict. In 2006, those two initiatives came together in the Gregg Centre. 

We remain committed to academic excellence and innovation in the study one of humanity's most tragic and perplexing social activities, and to the notion that knowledge and understanding are the foundations of a better world.
