ThinkPeace | Informing Change For Peace

Much of the best social science research—work that could lead to good policy—never leaves the academy. We’re here to make sure it does.

ThinkPeace is OEFR's blog led by Roberta Spivak (editor), Kelsey Coolidge, and Steven Beard, with contributions from the entire OEFR team. We dig into the world of social science looking for studies that could contribute to a more peaceful world. We also highlight some of our own cutting edge work on the causes of conflict and approaches to sustainable peace. If you’d like to contribute a post, please email us at
