Repression and the Escalation of Violence (RATE) (European Research Council 336019) Principal Investigator: Sabine Carey, University of Mannheim. The aim of this project is to explain the escalation and non-escalation of repression and intra-state armed conflict by analysing how characteristics of the government and its formal and informal security apparatus shape the dynamics of such violence. I am participating in the project as a Research Assistant to gather data on the case of Chile, using local sources of information in Spanish.
Effective Non-Violence? Resistance and Political Outcomes (Project 402234 - Conditions of Violence and Peace Research Department, PRIO). Principal Investigators: Kristian S Gleditsch and David Cunningham, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), University of Essex, University of Maryland. In this project, we present a new data set that identifies organizations articulating claims on the government. We examine theoretically how social structure, individual resources, and social resources affect collective action and the development of military capacity. Theory and finding are presented in the working paper "What Happens Next? From Incompatibilities to Outcomes in Anti-Government Disputes."
