Article
It seems to have become an unquestioned standard in genocide research to abbreviate a very limited number of mainly social psychological studies to help explain that individuals commit violent acts in the context of collective violence. This exemplary review of adaptations of Solomon E. Asch’s studies on independence and conformity hopes to reveal...

I consider the concept of 'perpetrator research' fraught with problems and therefore would like to suggest another approach (which by no means claims exclusivity). Taking actions as a starting point of research on collective violence removes the need to reconcile what can hardly be grasped morally with the often still normal existence (before the a...

The paper critiques the concept of ‘perpetrator research’ and advocates for an approach that takes actions as the starting point of research on collective violence.

Perpetrator Research has been around for some time. It has many merits. This is in no way meant patronizingly but with genuine appreciation. This text does not intend to praise, criticise or historicise the diverse approaches that labelled themselves or were labelled as research on those individuals that played diverse, often extremely violent part...

Der Beitrag stellt im Überblick die theoretische Schule bzw. Denkrichtung des Symbolischen Interaktionismus von ihrer Entstehung und Entwicklung bis hin zu ihren heutigen Einflüssen in Sozialpsychologie, Soziologie und Geschichtswissenschaft dar. Von seinem bedeutendsten Urheber George Herbert Mead (1863–1931) wurde der Symbolische Interaktionismus...
Chapter
This chapter shifts our focus towards perpetration as action and develops a theory of action to underlie the study of perpetrators. It argues that violence can best be understood as violence. It draws on a rich tradition in social theory, including the concepts of frame, mentality, figuration, social norms and practices, to argue that it is a more...
Chapter
War crimes are individual actions, or consist of such. Yet, since they are carried out within the context of war, they are equally actions of collective violence. Approaching this field from a violence studies perspective means focusing on the concrete actions in question and the conditions of their emergence. The rich empirical and theoretical wor...

Our system first pre-processes, de-duplicates, and clusters the tweets. The detected clusters are presented to the expert as so-called information threads. Subsequently, based on the informati...

RESUMO Recordação e memória são fenômenos secundários. Preenchem funções vitais para a ação humana individual e coletiva. Assim sendo, precisam ser investigados neste contexto, e não como um tema sui generis. Uma forma de dar concretude a esta afirmação é combinando esses dois fenômenos com teorias da ação encontradas nas ciências sociais e nas ciê...
