Center for Religion and Conflict

ASU is a national leader in bringing humanistic and artistic knowledge to addressing a variety of societal challenges, including our national security efforts.

The Center for the Study of Religion and Conflict combines demography and geography with deep knowledge of how religion works in cultures to help us understand “hot spots” around the
world. 

Center researchers specialize in the study of culture and counterextremism. With funding from the DOD, researchers developed a patented tool for tracking the influence and diffusion of online social movements. The center maintains an extensive network of international partners and field researchers to advance this work.
