Research Interests

Dr. Hollinger's research focuses on the conflict that occurs at the intersection of polticial, economic, and social interests on a global scale.  His research has appeared in International Journal of Self Help & Self Care.  Current projects include the construction of a peace and conflict database that will enable a holistic study of post-Cold war conflicts and the societies that experience them.  The intial stage of colmpiling and standardizing all available data on every country and conflict in the world is in its third yeaar of development.  The database includes 30+ years of observations across hundreds of variables for 185 countries.  The next stage of the project involves focusing on one conflict at a time to conduct a thorough conflict analysis involving the metasynthesis of ethnographic reports from the conflict zone.

The primary objective of this multiphase research project is to provide conflict analysis services that will enable the prediction of the outbreak of a conflict and identify proximate, intermediate and root causes of the potential conflict so that peacebuilding strategies may be employed in advance of violent conflict.  We seek to identify the symptoms of civil war in each region of the world so that violence against civilians may be mitigated.

Conducted with a team of faculty, and graduate and undergraduate students at the Polytechnic Campus, this project is designed to create a truly interdisciplinary conflict analysis community at the ASU Polytechnic Campus.
