The Conflict Studies Research Centre, or CSRC, is a unit of the Advanced Research and Assessment Group (ARAG), itself part of the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, based at Shrivenham. It specialises in potential causes of conflict in a wide area ranging from the Baltics to Central Asia.

This geographical focus was inherited from the Centre's original incarnation as the Soviet Studies Research Centre (SSRC) in 1972, examining the Soviet military threat. The Centre now examines wider issues including foreign policy, energy security and demographic change.

CSRC contains a small number of deep country specialists, providing in-house expertise on their subject countries to ARAG, as well as publishing research in their own right.
