Collaboration with German researchers on collective violence

22 September 2008

UCT's Assoc Prof Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela has joined forces with German scholars to investigate factors that give rise to collective violence and the motives that contribute to inter-group conflicts.

The study, funded by the European Science Foundation, is based in the Theology Department at Jena University in Germany.

The research seeks to understand some of the factors in collective violence and inter-group conflict that develop into extreme forms of dehumanising violence, explains Gobodo-Madikizela.
