Dear, I am aware of literature regarding the correlation between higher level of violence against civilians and foreign fighters presence (for example Bakke 2014, Moore 2019, Doctor and Willingham 2020, Doctor 2021, ...). I was wondering if there is anything that compares (also with qualitative methods) IS foreign fighters and IS local fighters in their relations with the locals in Syria and Iraq.

There are numerous examples of this within both the Chechen wars (foreign fighters coming to fight with the Chechens) and the Taliban in Afghanistan so I would perhaps focus on these two additional cases as a potential boon to your supposition as I believe it will prove accurate!

“Women are in back seated in their family in south Asian countries due to extreme gender stratification and men take the opportunity to control them using their male dominant rural culture. Rural men enjoy their muscle power over their women to prove their supremacy. Violence against women (VAW) starts from the family and women are in silence in most of the cases to avoid further familial disharmony as they have no place to go without any earning opportunity. Empowerment can inspire them more to find their own identity to protect themselves by raising their voices against the violence”.

Answer
Empowerment of women can rid them of spousal violence, but not all empowered women can stop domestic violence even by showing resistance against abusive husbands. In the Indian sub-continent, patriarchy excludes any protesting women socially. Thus it silences abused women.

I continue, even here at the end of 2021, to see research on the mental health and psychosocial wellbeing of people in low- and middle-income countries, led by researchers in high income countries, for which no local collaborator is listed as a co-author. I find this troubling, and feel it lends credence to the view of much of our research as having a colonialist underpinning. If a study reports on help- seeking behavior among displaced people in Country X, or Intimate Partner Violence in Occupied Country Y, or patterns of distress among survivors of violence in Country Z, shouldn't people from the target countries & communities be involved in all aspects of the research, including co-authorship on publications?

I am working one a civil war final paper for my graduate course. I am interested in examining the dynamics of Sengal civil war.
First, I will be exploring the root causes of civil war from 1982-2014. What are the difference contexts and greivances that trigger the civil war?
As the main conflict essentially ended in 2014 with a ceasefire, I will then go on to explore how that ceasefire was initiated and access the effectiveness of the stabilization/nation-building elements within this ceasefire period.
However, despite ceasfire in place, low-level violence remains and the problem seems to be unresolved. This leads me to my last part, why the previous ceasefire manage to successfully end the war, but not mitigating the unrest in the region altogether. In other words, why is 2014 ceasefire successful in reducing violence but why the major problems unsolved leading to current low-level violence in Senegal? In short, this last part will explore why 2014 ceasefure is not perfect?
I am urgently in need of literature for that, any form of assistance will be highly appreciated. Thank you!

Hello,
I am conducting empirical research and I am using the world governance indicators, one of them is the one on " political stability and absence of violence terrorism" it measures perceptions of the likelihood that the government will be destabilized or overthrown by unconstitutional or violent means, including politically-motivated violence and terrorism. I am studying a panel fixed effect model between this variable and Tourism and I attached the results.

Dear colleagues, I need your help to reflect on the following questions. I'm engaging in research project concerned about experience of countries in the mechanisms of overcoming violence and divisions in their past politics. All countries have gone through some sort of violent past, how have they reconciled with their past and each other? In cases where they had not established commissions or gone through processes that were explicitly named 'reconciliation', how did they manage to come to state of peace, democracy and development? It is my pleasure also if you can suggest me literature related to this issue.
Relevant answer
Answer
Various interpretations of the causes and roots of violence are thanks to narratives and competing myths (and myths are “strangely impervious to facts”). It is the most challenging task, as it raises questions of accountability, and all parties, of course, see themselves as just. Instead of asking why should be asked what made it possible? Mapping an ideology that lies behind the conflict is a crucial task (at least in the former Yugoslavia region). Experts generally agree that the reconciliation and peacebuilding process should be all levels of society involved. Lederach explicitly states that “peacebuilding must be undertaken simultaneously at many levels of society. At the same time, Bar-On observes that “top-down processes and bottom-up is difficult to reconcile due to the lack of a common language and social perspective.” In fact, in the region of the former Yugoslavia, peacebuilding processes have so far not been initiated from the highest level of decision-makers decisions in governments and parliaments.

Hi Heather,
To clarify, your hypothesis suggests that a correlation exists between moral distress and police violence causality? Or that a correlation exists between moral distress and documented police violence?
A few tips to begin your research. One, you will need to operationalize what you mean by "police violence". In other words, for the purposes of your research, what precisely constitutes, "police violence"?
Two, identify who is the subject of the "moral distress". For example, alleged victims of the "police violence"? Non-primary victims who may merely observe "police violence", etc.
Good luck with your research Heather.

The Management of Aggression and Violence Attitude Scale (MAVAS) was used to identify staff perceptions about the causes and management of aggression and violence. Previous research has validated the 30-item MAVAS in comparing the views of mental health nurses and psychiatric in-patients as to the causes and management of patient aggression and violence.
Despite well-established validity and reliability in the inpatient mental health setting, the psychometric properties of the MAVAS have not been evaluated in the emergency department (ED) setting. A study explored and compared the attitudes held by staff and patients in a forensic mental health service about aetiology and management of aggression and violence reported very little overlap between their findings and the proposed four-factor structure.
Furthermore, the original survey questions were designed for a mental health setting where seclusion was used, however seclusion is not used in EDs. To ensure the MAVAS is applicable in the ED setting, we had replaced the word ‘seclusion’ with ‘security’ in three items of the MAVAS. We have also changed the scale from a 100-mm visual analogue scale to a 4-point Likert Scale (1=Strongly agree, 4=Strong disagree).
We would like to test the factor structure of the MAVAS tool within a new population (ED service users and staff) in order to verify its factor validity in this population. A confirmatory factor analysis on the ED staff and consumers sample is planned to assess the reliability of the modified version of MAVAS in the ED setting. But we don't have AMOS, can we do this analysis using SPSS or other softwares? What is the best way to test the factor structure? Thanks!

Interesting that in the film based on Hermann Hesse's novel, Siddhartha, it is a cobra which kills Siddhartha's beloved wife, though snakes were considered holy and wise in some versions of theology. Also interesting is that the Rod of Asclepius- Ράβδος του Ασκληπιού - emblem of healing for medicine is a snake (not to be confused with the caduceus which also has a positive connotation as the staff of Hermes). The myth of Tiresias has him changing genders when he strikes and wounds snakes as they are mating, and then switches back with the when he witnesses them again seven years later-- all this leading to him being blinded by Hera when he reports on which gender more enjoys sexual pleasure. Snakes were autochthonous- "sprung from the earth" - much as Athena sprang from Zeus's thigh. They had wisdom. Obviously also snakes and dragons as well as rats are somewhat revered or at least respected in Chinese astrology, since all 3 creatures have zodiacal years. The moral of all this may be that it is an ill wind that blows no good and that, as with humans, there are powerfully positive and negative individuals in all species. Cross-cultural influences shared by ancient Hindu, Greek and Egyptian mythology (Hermes Trismegistus) may have many antecedents in earlier Mesopotamian mythology as well- the caduceus may have originated with the Sumerian god Ningishzida, god of the underworld and the autochthonous vegetation which sprang.therefrom. By the way, lest anyone be under the delusion that I knew all this before I started writing, I owe huge thanks to Wikipedia for all but Hesse's novel and the myth of Tiresias. I confused the caduceus with the rod of Ascepius like many others in the USA, including health organizations who use the caduceus with its two snakes rather than the rod with its single snake and is entwined around a more primitive staff.

From my point of view, although many people think this violence is just like another, it should be considered as gender-based violence because it has only affected women for a lot of years by the simple fact that we are women. Women throughout history have been abused, we have received insults, we have had to ask for permission only because we are women and we have had to endure thousands of situations that have made us feel inferior for thousands years.

La violencia ejercida contra las personas tiene como base la cultura a través del uso de estereotipos, el abuso de poder en esta sociedad patriarcal y la dominación masculina hacia las mujeres.
Dada la importancia del factor cultural, todas las formas de manifestación de la violencia son perjudiciales para cualquier persona y no existen diferencias geográficas. Aunque la diferencia entre algunos países reside en el valor que se le da a la figura de la mujer (como el caso de España frente al de Irak donde la mujer carece de importancia) las consecuencias para las víctimas son las mismas y puede producirse en cualquier situación economía, social o política. Por lo tanto, que un país sea desarrollado o en vía de desarrollo no indica que la violencia sea menor o no se ejerza como tal.
Frente a este debate también encontramos otros aspectos importantes como puede ser como la conducta aprendida en la infancia como modelo repetitivo de comportamientos y en futuras relaciones abusivas.

Relevant answer
Answer
Thank you Richard for sharing your papers. However, I agree that when one suffers trauma one would go to a place of safety / dissociation of the attack, but i still believe that the perpetrator must at some level dissociate from the victim due to the closeness and intimacy of the knife attack. I agree using a gun would crate a different feeling of intent.

For a new study on what situational factors mediate or moderate the relationship between the use of alcohol and intimate partner violence, I am looking for factors such as poverty, partner substance abuse, stressful environment, ethnicity, etc. Does anyone have a list of such factors?
Relevant answer
Alcohol per se induces a mood change which is sufficient for initiating violence.
"The more a person drinks and the more aggressive he becomes, the more likely he is not to believe the opinion that drinking leads to aggression. Women and older people have a stronger belief in the causal role played by alcohol in aggressive behaviour. These results draw attention to the importance of the cognitive effect of personal involvement. Heavy drinking and aggressivity can prevent a person from recognizing the danger that drinking can have aggressive, criminal consequences. This relationship can be used well in clinical and criminological practice of crime prevention strategy for patients treated with drinking problems and facing proceedings or condemned for criminal actions. The findings of the study also raise a theoretical consideration that the theory of social learning is not a sufficient explanatory model for the connections between drinking and aggression."

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Michelle: Violence that takes place in some countries has more than one form and type, one of which is ethnic violence. This kind of violence has its roots in cumulative attitudes between two communities, or religious attitudes, which are fed by ordinary and ignorant people. Therefore, the political elites representing their sects who are ignorant and imbued with the legacy of the past and hatred will lead their sects to civil war. The interest of love for leadership and visibility, love of money and greed may lead to sectarian violence and civil war.
Political leaders with bad qualities such as ignorance, hatred, love of money, love of political leadership, continued power, and personal interests may also introduce external factors, all of which are important factors that lead to ethnic violence. The best way to get rid of ethnic tension is to learn and educate, because raising public awareness will lead to the election of better leaders and avoid violence. "How you will be, political leaders will be a reflection of you."

I acknowledge the fact that Mexico is not your traditional case of insurgency, but there are some factors to consider in this sense: the violence towards the Mexican government, police forces and citizens added up with the fact that the country is being ripped of economically (plus the considerable amount of time Mexico spent fighting cartels) by TCOs. I'm looking for help to narrow down my research puzzle as much as possible and correlate it with appropriate data/evidence. For example, would you analyse state's performative power in relation with TCOs activity? Any help appreciated.
Relevant answer
Answer
An interpretative case study methodology potentially based on the activities of one or two cartels. I'm looking for a theoretical link between Mexico's TCOs and their fit within a new model of insurgent criteria specific for the globalized era (commercial insurgency in which the distinction between classical criminal organizations and economic insurgents is blurred due to high corruption rates, which in turn favor for the preservation of parasitic societal conditions). By the way, I'm also inclined to include US-Mexico relations within the project. The study should be designed in accordance with political science conventions (Politi cs and IR;insurgency studies)

The literature often cites high rates of PTSD following sexual violence. It is regularly cited as the most traumatic form of violence but I have found very few studies investigate or hypothesise why this is. Some allude to the interpersonal nature of the crime. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to any research that investigates this in more depth.
Relevant answer
Answer
A very wonderful question. It is generally taken for granted. The reasons must be explored. It's true that there is lot of stress and trauma due to such offence over the victim. But mechanism of trauma can help give insights into therapy. Generally we find such explanations in cognitive psychology literature, but they are mostly about alterations in belief structure. Psychoanalytic literature has good coverage of trauma, but I am not aware about specific literature about rape. I think they have covered this in less detail.
