Welcome to the home page of Professor David Carment.

This web site is intended to serve as a research and information resource on conflict analysis, prevention, and resolution. This site is directed towards scholars, students, policy makers, and government officials interested in the prevention and management of conflict.

In 2005 I became a full Professor of International Affairs at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University and Fellow of the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute (CDFAI). I am listed in the Who's Who in International Affairs and serve as the principal investigator for the Country Indicators for Foreign Policy project (CIFP).

I was the Director of the Centre for Security and Defence Studies at Carleton University. I am the recipient of a Carleton Graduate Student's teaching excellence award, Carleton University's research achievement award and the Petro-Canada Young Innovator Award. In addition to my work at Carleton, I have held a Fellowship at Harvard University's Belfer Center, where I contributed to the Harvard International Review.

I am also a NATO Fellow and the recipient of several competitive grants including awards from SSHRC, DND, FAC and CIDA. I was also a Cadieux Fellow at the Department of Foreign Affairs. In 1993-94 I held a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. My most recent work focuses on developing failed state risk assessment and early warning methodologies and evaluating models of third party intervention.

My primary research interests fall into the categories of conflict prevention, conflict resolution, ethnic conflict, peacekeeping, internet technology, and Canadian foreign affairs. For more on these topics you can visit my Research Interests page and the Research Resources page

I hope you find this site useful. If you have any comments, queries, suggestions or links that you think I should add to the site, please feel free to contact me. Comments can be submitted by e-mail or via the feedback page.

Cheers, David Carment
