UVA Research Team on Religion, Conflict, and Foreign Affairs

Spring 2015 Grant Recipient


Peter Ochs (Religious Studies) A UVA research committee will work Summer and Fall 2015 to initiate the organization and planning of a new UVA family of research teams on religion, conflict, and foreign affairs. They will also analyze the results of prior religion and conflict research in South Asia, in order to generate an initial, UVA-based approach to research on inter-religious conflict; the focus will be on diagnostic methods and mitigation techniques. The UVA research teams will include scholars from around the globe, in part serving the Global Covenant of Religions and in part pursuing a broader agenda of academic research.
