This seminar is open to the public.
The Political Violence Workshop brings together graduate students from the Harvard and Cambridge communities working on issues related to political violence, including revolutions, coups, civil wars, ethnic conflict, terrorism, and failed states. One objective is to develop a cohesive set of scholars focusing on related research. The second objective is to provide direct training to advanced graduate students working in the field. The workshop culminates each spring with a graduate student conference that brings together students and faculty from Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Yale University.
