Inside this issue of the Peace Science Digest, you will find analysis of research highlighting the importance of one of the Digest’s primary goals: making academic research more accessible and relevant to those beyond the academic community. Next, we analyze a study that looks at the relationship between people’s beliefs on masculinity and honor, on the one hand, and their attitudes towards aggressive policies and war, on the other. Our third analysis explores the complex attitudes of people in a post-conflict setting “after the smoke clears” by looking at how different conflict narratives contribute to reconciliation. We then turn to research addressing a growing concern in the international community about how to influence nonstate actors to comply with humanitarian norms, laws, and treaties. Finally, we analyze a study examining the methods by which liberal democracies create and sustain militarism and hence enable war.
