Pragmora's volunteer Research Associates are strong researchers who are passionate about building peace and about about making a real difference in the world.

Typically, each Research Associates focuses on one specific conflict. They prepare detailed timelines of the history of a conflict, and clear analysis of the key issues and key players in the conflict. All information produced is put through a rigorous vetting process with external experts.
