The agency even hinted at possible downgrades - if the Eurozone gets worse. But Merkel immediately fired back that Germany would remain Europe's financial haven, despite the Eurocrisis.

  • Is Violence a Function of our Culture? (Full Session)

    Homicide remains an endemic, seemingly unsolvable problem in America. And violent crime afflicts African-American communities to a much greater degree than it does others, as does mass incarceration — and as does police violence. What is the cause of this crisis? What role does racism play? What is the role of culture? Are there any solutions to be had? The mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu, has been confronting this crisis head-on, and Atlantic Magazine National Correspondent Ta-Nehisi Coates has written widely on matters of race, policing and American history.

  • UA Professors Offer Perspective on Terrorism

    Recent events in Paris have prompted a number of questions, including these: How has global terrorism advanced so quickly? What part does religion play? And what actions should the United States and other countries take against the threat? University of Arizona associate professors Alex Braithwaite and Faten Ghosn of the School of Government and Public Policy, which is housed in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, offer some context and perspective on terrorism in light of the gun and bomb attacks on Nov. 13. Braithwaite’s research and teaching focus on the causes and contagion of violent and nonviolent conflict, including terrorism, protests, riots, civil war and international wars. His research shows that incidents of violent political conflict cluster in space and time, a...

  • APSA 2014: Policy Bargaining and International Conflict

    This is my presentation for APSA 2014, based on a paper co-written by Peter Bils. Here is the abstract: Studies of bargaining and war generally focus on two sources of incomplete information: uncertainty about the probability of victory and uncertainty about the costs of fighting. We introduce a third: ideological preferences of a spatial policy. Under these conditions, standard results from the bargaining model of war break down: peace can be inefficient and it may be impossible to avoid war. We then extend the model to allow for cheap talk pre-play communications. Whereas incentives to misrepresent normally render cheap talk irrelevant, here communication can cause peace and ensure that agreements are efficient. Moreover, peace can become more likely when the proposer becomes more uncer...

Ghosn’s interests focus on the interaction of adversaries and how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme is the importance of the choice of strategy.

She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the American University of Beirut.

Facebook Emotional Experiment Linked To Pentagon Research On Civil Unrest Facebook's experiment on over half-a-million unsuspecting users has taken a new twist with the revelation that a researcher connected to a Department of Defense-funded program to use the military to quell civil unrest also participated in the study. Social media sites exploded over the weekend after it was revealed that Facebook, no stranger to controversy of late, secretly manipulated posts being seen by nearly 700,000 users in 2012 in order to allow researchers to study how emotional states are transmitted over the platform. Results of the week-long study conducted by researchers at Facebook, Cornell University, and the University of California appeared in the June edition of the journal 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Scientists' (PNAS) under the rather insidious title, 'Experimental evidence of massive-scale emotional contagion through social networks'. Facebook altered the content that showed up on certain users' news feeds to control the number of posts that contained words with positively or negatively charged emotions. The team concluded its federally funded study by saying that "emotions spread via contagion through a network." More Here: http://rt.com/usa/169848-pentagon-facebook-study-minerva/ Facebook's controversial "emotional study", which subjected over half a million unwitting users of the social network to a psychological conditioning experiment, has direct ties to research funded by the Department of Defense concerning the likelihood of civil unrest. The Facebook scandal hit the headlines this week, as it was revealed that the company participated with a federally funded UCSF study into how emotions can be swayed on social media by controlling the content of personal feeds and deciding whether to show negative or positive material. While that fact in itself is disturbing, it seems that the rabbit hole goes even deeper. Bloggers and online sleuths have since highlighted that the research appears to be at least in part connected to a Pentagon-led project called the Minerva Initiative. Researcher and London Guardian writer Nafeez Ahmed has noted that the project provides "funding to universities to model the dynamics, risks and tipping points for large-scale civil unrest across the world." In other words, the DoD wants to master how to predict, prevent, manipulate, control, and even instigate mass civil unrest. It wishes to do this by developing "operational tools" related to "social, cultural, behavioral, and political forces."
