How to Break the Cycles of War and Violence

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

How to Break the Cycles of War and Violence

Anastasiia Timmer is a criminologist who was born and raised in Ukraine. Now based in California, Timmer studies why people commit acts of violence. She and her team of Ukrainian, Russian, and American researchers went to Ukraine in 2017, after the Russian invasion of the Ukrainian provinces of Crimea and Donbas. At that point, as Timmer points out, “people of Ukraine were suffering from war for many years.” Their goal was to understand how those years might have affected civilian relationships and their sense of right and wrong, especially when it came to embracing violence as a solution to both interpersonal and international conflicts. New studies are discovering that exposure to war can make violence more acceptable among civilians–but there might be ways to break the cycle.” This Greater Good article share more. { read more }
