I have a new blog post out today on Trump’s air strikes against Syria, in which I discuss these strikes in the context of just war theory. You can find it here.

new podcast discussing my work on religious conflict

Posted in publications on April 4, 2017 by phenne

I have an article forthcoming in theĀ Journal of Conflict ResolutionĀ co-authored with Jason Klocek, a doctoral candidate at UC-Berkeley. The article combines our research programs, and looks at how religious conflict influences religious repression using a quantitative analysis. We find that earlier religious conflict increases regime’s sense of threat from religious groups, so they respond by limiting the freedom of religion broadly in society. I’ll post a link to the article once it is out.

My co-author spoke recently with Research on Religion, and excellent podcast series that presents discussions of new work in the study of religion. Jason had a good conversation with Tony Gill, a professor at the University of Washington who hosts the program. You can listen here.
