Abstract:

The goal of this research effort is to develop a systematic framework for the study of political conflict, the belief systems underlying such disagreements, and potential ways of avoiding conflict. Our focus has been on developing quantitative models of social conflict and individual behavior, and developing new theoretical tools to study the dynamics of belief formation and evolution in models of political conflict and compromise. Our objective has been to provide qualitative analysis that give insights into the sources of political and social conflict and quantitative or computational methods for decision makers that can provide tools for derivation of new policies.
