Who We Are

While ethnic, religious, and cultural conflicts have historically destabilized the world, the advent of high-speed global communication networks have transformed simple utterances, images, and writings into the ideological fodder for the rising number of ethnic, religious, and other transcultural conflicts. The Transcultural Conflict and Violence Initiative builds research teams of faculty and competitively selected doctoral students in an effort to:

  1. Better understand the underlying causes of transcultural conflicts,
  2. Identify research-based solutions for reducing the impact of transcultural conflicts, and
  3. Detect predictive indicators of future transcultural conflicts.
