V&I Lab

The V&I Lab is a home for research on violence and intervention. We study violence broadly construed, including political conflict but also criminal violence, and we examine different types of intervention designed to mitigate violence. We seek to conduct basic and applied research with implications for both academics and practitioners. The V&I Lab provides a forum for collaborative work on these topics. We are unified by our commitment to this research and use the lab to effectively conduct existing projects and develop new projects together. The V&I Lab was founded in 2018.

Projects AND PARTNERS

Current areas of research include post-conflict consolidation, intervention invited by fragile states, and policing, especially outside high-income states. Existing projects with various collaborators are funded by the Carnegie Corporation, the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA), the Minerva Research Initiative (see our Program on Security Institutions and Violence Insecurity), the National Science Foundation, and the UC Laboratory Fees Research Program. We are currently partnered with the Observatorio de la Democracia on our work in Colombia.
