Monika Onken left PRIO in 2020. The information on this page is kept for historical reasons.
Monika is a PhD Student at the Berghof Foundation and the Free University of
Berlin and a member of the Research School on Peace and Conflict. She
holds a Masters Degree in Peace and Conflict Research from the Uppsala
University. She is working on the effects of violent tactics within nonviolent
campaigns on the campaign’s ability exercise power and mobilize the
masses. During her stay she will be working on how different types of
violent tactics (unarmed violence, riots, and armed violence) alter
the state’s cost-benefit-calculation to explain government responses in
terms of concessions, repressions or inaction. A brief description of her
research interests and her PhD project is available here https://www.berghof-foundation.org/en/about-us/people/monika-onken/.
