Centre for Conflict Resolution
The Centre for Conflict Resolution is a social research institute of the University of Cape Town.
It was founded in 1968 by Professor H.W. van der Merwe in Cape Town, South Africa, to conduct academic research on relations between "racial" groups, with the goal of promoting mutual acceptance and co-operation.
Initially named the Abe Bailey Institute for Inter-Racial Studies after the original funding organisation, the Abe Bailey Trust, the Institute was renamed the Centre for Intergroup Studies in 1973.
Since 1990 the Centre is known as the Centre for Conflict Resolution.
