Jason Lyall’s research focuses on the dynamics of violence in both conventional and guerrilla warfare, with special emphasis on Afghanistan and Russia’s Northern Caucasus—particularly Chechnya. His work draws on diverse methods, ranging from historical and cross-national comparisons to field and quasi-experiments at the subnational and local level. His research has been published in the American Political Science Review, International Organization, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and World Politics. We talk with him about his article that's forthcoming in the American Political Science Review on ethnicity and violence in Chechnya.
