King’s College London

King’s College London (KCL) is a public research university and a member institution of the federal University of London. Research is core to King’s: it is what we do, what we care about and how we educate. It is how we channel our creativity to further knowledge and understanding, challenge convention and deliver impact. Our vision is to deliver research to inform and innovate. Through world-leading and outward-looking research that is specifically focused on meeting societal need, King’s aims to make the world a better place.

On the XCEPT programme, KCL will lead research that examines the drivers, norms and narratives of violence and peace at individual, group and societal levels.

Below is an animation which introduces KCL’s XCEPT research.
