I conduct research on political violence, combining theories and methods from anthropology, behavioral economics, cognitive science, political science, and psychology. I currently lead a five-year project Adapted to War (AWAR) funded by the European Research Council (ERC Starting Grant). You can hear more about AWAR and my research in this podcast.
Since 2021, I have been a Senior Researcher at PRIO (Peace and Conflict Dynamics). Before coming to PRIO, I held assistant professor/postdoctoral positions at the Department of Political Science, Aarhus University and the Department of Government, the University of Essex. I also held visiting researcher positions at the University of Oxford (Politics and International Relations), University of California, Santa Barbara (Psychological and Brain Sciences), and University of California, Los Angeles (Anthropology).
I received my PhD from the Department of Political Science, Aarhus University in 2014, and MA from the Institute of International Relations and Political Science, Vilnius University.

The sometimes-violent antigovernment demonstrations that erupted during 2020 and 2021 were fueled in part by the spread of extremist ideologies, conspiratorial thinking, and political polarization. New research published in the journal Psychological Science also puts some of the blame for civil unrest and political violence on the psychological burden of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Research has just published a new special issue on ‘Security implications
of climate change’ (January 2021), guest edited by Nina von Uexkull and Halvard
Buhaug. The special issue contains 12 original research articles and viewpoint
essays, supplemented by an introductory
article by the guest editors that presents a review the state of the art.
This is the second time JPR dedicates a special issue to climate change
and conflict; the first
time was in 2012, edited by Nils Petter Gleditsch. The new issue represents
the most up-to-date collection of studies on the subject. Several articles,
including the introduction, are available as open access.
Read the special issue here.
This week we have received wonderful news from the European Research Council (ERC). No less than two brand new 5-year research projects will be conducted at PRIO with Starting Grants from this funder: Marta Bivand Erdal will lead the project "Migration rhythms in trajectories of upward social mobility in Asia", and Henrikas Bartusevičius will lead "Adapted to War".
We are also very happy to see that the University of Oslo (Faculty of Law) will host Mareile Kaufmann's new ERC Starting Grant Project The changing relationships between digital technologies, DNA and evidence. Kaufmann was a doctoral student at PRIO and maintains a secondary researcher position at the institute.
