Professor Oliver Ramsbotham has been Chair of the Oxford Research Group "since April 2007. He moved to the Department of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford in 1991, having worked several years previously as a consultant and writer with Oxford Research Group. At the Department of Peace Studies he was Professor of Peace Studies and Head of Department between 1999-2002. Since then he has been Professor of Conflict Resolution. He has published more than 60 articles and papers, mainly on humanitarian intervention, conflict resolution and peacekeeping, but also with an interest in Islam/Christian relations." 
"He is the author, with Tom Woodhouse of Humanitarian Intervention in Contemporary Conflict (1996); The Crescent and the Cross: Muslim and Christian Approaches to War and Peace (1997); and Islam, Christianity and Humanitarian Intervention (1997).
"Prof. Ramsbotham has published in three main areas. First, in the field of Conflict Resolution, he has published Contemporary Conflict Resolution: The Prevention, Management and Transformation of Deadly Conflict (Polity Press), co-authored with Tom Woodhouse and Hugh Miall. This is a systematic survey of the whole conflict resolution field today, and reflects long-standing research interests and a broad programme of conflict resolution theory and practice teaching over many years."
