Megan Price

Head Conflict Research Unit


  • Conflict and Fragility
  • Security and Justice

Megan Price is an international Security & Rule of Law specialist with over 15 years’ experience in research and analysis on stabilization policy and programming in conflict-affected settings.

Having joined the Clingendael Institute in 2012 as a Research Fellow for the Conflict Research Unit, Megan has contributed research on international policies and strategies for supporting security reform, armed violence reduction and rule of law reform in challenging settings. The main thrust of her research focuses on security provision as a negotiated political process, and the role of informal and non-conventional actors in statebuilding.

Megan has been named Head of the Conflict Research Unit since August 2022. In 2017, Megan was named Head of the Knowledge Platform for Security and Rule of Law (KPSRL), and oversaw the significant expansion of that community, which convenes over 5,000 security & rule of law scholars, policymakers and programming specialists. At the KPSRL she worked to strengthen exchanges across different continents and communities of practice, encouraging constructive debate and collaborative learning to improve international security and rule of law policy and implementation.

Megan has field experience in Kosovo, Liberia, the Philippines, Guinea Bissau, Haiti, Guatemala, Kenya and Afghanistan.
