Social Policy Grant
This project investigates the influence of social identity on conflict behavior. In particular, I will examine whether the norm of reciprocity is intensified or diminished under the influence of shared identity among disputants. Using a series of controlled laboratory experiments, I look into (1) if identity driven decisions can override power driven ones; (2) the causal mechanism of the identity-conflict outcome relationship; and (3) how a shift in identity can(not) result in immediate changes in conflict behavior. The proposed models of identity driven conflict behavior are also tested against historical cases of foreign policy crises.
