In this lecture Dr. Eric Skoog will be discussing his research about psychology in conflicts, and how these affect our behaviours/attitudes in war and armed conflict.
Drawing from an evolutionary perspective, Dr. Skoog will explain how we can connect these subjects to modern contexts wherein social and armed conflicts are present.
He takes an evolutionary approach to conflict, investigating how behaviours adapted to ancestral environments affect current attitudes, decision making and strategic considerations in conflict situations. His research approaches these questions both from a theoretical point of view, and by empirically testing them using lab and field experiments.
This lecture will be held in English.
