PRIO has long been at the forefront of research on protest movements.
As of 2020 PRIO houses three major projects that simultaneously are investigating mass mobilizations and protests. As a result, we will have a large team of leading experts in the field. This is something that no other research institution can boast of, either nationally or internationally.
Read more about this in Tora Sagård's summing up of these projects and the links between them.
Why do some pro-democracy movements succeed while others fail?
Severe drought is associated with an increased incidence of armed conflict among agriculture-dependent populations in the least developed states. By strengthening the political status and economic well-being of such marginalized groups, conflict risk can be reduced. This is a key finding of a study just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) by a team of researchers from Uppsala University and PRIO.
The development of an early-warning system for armed conflicts will begin at Uppsala University after the European Research Council (ERC)
has decided to contribute EUR 2,5 million to the project.
