Project
There are three main research goals: to examine the (1) role of individual-level factors in adopting beliefs in just war ; (2) universality (vs. cultural specificity) of beliefs related to just war; and (3) macro-level factors moderating the concept of just war across national and religious backgrounds. To examine the concept of just war we use three-dimensional model of beliefs in just war: (1) just war – restricted view on reasons and means of war, as self-defensive and targeted only toward military goals; (2) utilitarian war – unrestricted view on war reasons, accepting war as a way of intergroup conflicts resolutions; (3) dirty war – unrestricted view on war means, accepting any means useful in defeating the enemy.
Project

Project
The PsyCorona study is a multinational collaboration that aims to identify psychological and cultural factors that may be relevant to the virus spread and its imminent social and material consequences. The first survey includes brief measures to assess topic-relevant beliefs, fears and frustrations, subjective states, control and efficacy, values and needs, reasoning, and behavioral self-reports. The survey at https://psycorona.org has a built-in longitudinal component as well as a broader data science mission involving metadata. Pontus Leander and Jocelyn Belanger are PI.
