The Veterans & Families Institute for Military Social Research works in collaboration with universities and NGOs around the UK and internationally.

We have a number of active Memoranda of Understanding (MoU’s) with universities and research institutes around the world. These include:

  • CIMVHR (the Canadian Institute for Military Veterans Health Research)
  • University of Northumbria
  • Syracuse University

We're members of Cobseo, The Confederation of Service Charities and contribute to a number of Cobseo’s working groups. We are also involved in two NATO research panels, covering areas including transition and sexual violence in the military.

Internationally, our work has included presenting at a conference at the University of Yonsei, Seoul on behalf of the South Korean Government; work with the Estonian MoD on models of transition; presentations to senior officers from the Nigerian military on the evaluation of military human factors programmes; presenting on current research thinking to a Chinese delegation; and we are invited to meet with government and NGO officials in Israel.
