Our Center

The Centre for Social Conflict and Cohesion Studies (COES) brings together a group of academics from multiple disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, to generate research on topics related to social conflict and cohesion, in Chile. COES focuses its academic work and activities to promote public awareness and social dialogue, on an analysis of the multiple manifestations of social conflict in Chile, studying its causes and historical and cultural context.

The Centre is coordinated by the Universidad de Chile and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, with the collaboration of the Universidad Diego Portales and the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez. COES is financed by the FONDAP project of the National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT).
