Security, Peace & Conflict

Talk title: "Mano Dura: An Experimental Evaluation of Military Policing in Cali, Colombia," coauthored with Michael Weintraub

Security, Peace & Conflict is dedicated to the study of political violence - armed conflict both within and across state borders - and to the study of politics in the shadow of violence. We seek to understand the causes of armed conflict and violence, the conduct and consequences of the use of violence and coercion by state and non-state actors, and the conditions under which the peace and security of states, societies, groups and individuals can be protected. Toward these ends, we examine the policies and strategies used by states and other political agents - both domestic and international - to control, manage, contain or prevent the use of political violence.
