O’Neill Chair in Peace at Ulster University based at the International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE) and also within the Transitional Justice Institute (TJI). Previously he was INCORE Director (August 2008-September 2015), in which he demonstrated extensive research leadership.

Prof Hamber has a record of publications in peer-reviewed academic journals, books and/or research reports of the highest quality.

Professor Hamber has led many international research projects having responsibility for the overall management of the research and other activities.  He continues to collaborate internationally and stretch the boundaries of understanding in relation to conflict and peace, e.g. currently he is working on an AHRC project called “Screening Violence” using film to understand the impact of conflict, which is a 4-year research project with partners at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, St. Andrews and Ulster and partners in Algeria, Argentina, Colombia, Northern Ireland and Indonesia.
