ThinkPeace | Informing Change For Peace

Much of the best social science research—work that could lead to good policy—never leaves the academy. We’re here to make sure it does.

ThinkPeace explores the causes of conflict and the elements of good governance that make sustainable peace possible. Our monthly series has focused on topics such as how to improve UN peacekeeping, why dictators hold elections, and understanding the dynamics of migration throughout Africa. ThinkPeace also highlights One Earth Future's latest research on political violence; coup d’etat; the role of the private sector in peacebuilding; and women, peace, and security.
