Background and activities

My research focuses on public opinion in former conflict areas. How do people's political attitudes and behavior influence the transition from violent conflict to peaceful democracy? I am particularly interested in people's support for political institutions and peace-building mechanisms, as well as the consequences of political violence on people's attitudes.
