Blades, bombs, bullets and ‘bots

Research cluster

The core issue of this cluster is built around the study of the use of deadly force in the international system. How do we understand the darker side of human behaviour? Why can we understand the use of violence in the world to achieve policy objectives? What are the means that are employed to achieve these objectives? How do we understand the effort to prevent and counteract terrorism, genocide, war?
