PROFILE

 

PhD University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Ravi Bhavnani is Professor of International Relations / Political Science at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. Bhavnani's research explores the micro-foundations of violence by means of agent-based computational modelling and disaggregated empirical analysis. More specifically, his work examines the endogenous relationships among: (i) the characteristics, beliefs, and interests of relevant actors; (ii) social mechanisms and emergent social structures that shape attitudes, decision-making and behavior; and (iii) patterns of violence. His articles appear in the American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Politics, Conflict Management & Peace Science, Complexity, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Journal of Peace Research, Journal of Politics, and Nationalism & Ethnic Politics, among others.
