Religion, Politics, and Conflict Lab Receives BOV Funding

January 31, 2017

Professors Peter Ochs and Jerry White received funding for a Religion, Politics, and Conflict Lab (RPC) that aims to produce cutting-edge research into the nature, causes, and solutions to religion-related, violent conflicts anywhere in the world. Promoting unprecedented, collaborative research among scholars from a diverse range of sciences, from data science, systems engineering, quantum logic, to literature, history, and religion, it seeks to design a procedure and to prepare it for field-testing while at the same time training students in mixed quantitative-qualitative methods that can be directly applied to real-world problems.
