In June, the German Foundation of Peace Research (DSF) decided to fund my research project on group hostilities in conflict zones. I’ll be able to use the technology developed in collaboration with Roos van der Haer and Niranjan Sahoo to run electronic surveys (with mobile cash reimbursements) in India and Kenya. In addition, Constantin Ruhe has joined the project and we’re currently finalizing the research plan. Finally, I scored a 5-year position at the Zukunftskolleg which entails a lot more time to do research and build a teaching portfolio. I am very grateful to the DSF, the Zukunftskolleg, and my collaborators.
