The Heidelberg Institute for International Conflict Research (HIIK) is an independent and interdisciplinary registered association located at the Department of Political Science at the University of Heidelberg. HIIK seeks to foster a civil and informed debate about issues related to political conflict.

On this blog HIIK researchers comment on current developments in political conflicts worldwide. The articles shed light on situations that are rarely covered by western media. Opinions expressed on this blog are solely those of the author or commenter, not of HIIK, which takes no institutional positions.
