Understanding Political Violence in America

CPOST is engaged in a multi-year effort to understand and track the scope and drivers of support for domestic political violence from the right and left in contemporary America. Led by Robert Pape, professor of political science at the University of Chicago and director of the Chicago Project on Security and Threats, this research aims to provide a nuanced understanding of “who” supports political violence in America and "why" to know who we are dealing with and create viable solutions for the future
