Current conflicts across the Middle East, Asia and the Horn of Africa are underpinned by a multitude of social and cultural factors. These include, but are not limited to, phenomena like the rise of sectarian and identity-based conflict, and the physical destruction of infrastructure and livelihoods.
To mitigate cross-border conflicts, policymakers must understand how exposure to such factors influence an individual or groups’ propensity towards violence. It is equally important to study the conditions that must exist for peace to flourish.
