Dr. Jen Shaffer published the article, An Anthropological Perspective on the Climate Change and Violence Relationship, in Current Climate Change Reports


"This review explores the complex climate change-violence relationship through an anthropological lens, focusing on the interacting social and environmental conditions that constrain individual choices for violence. Evidence and methods used by anthropologists to identify violent events, as well as anthropological theories regarding why individuals choose violence, are discussed. A general social-environmental model is presented and explored through four case studies, two archaeological and two ethnographic."
