Research Interests and Research Project regarding Regional Research Center "Transformations of Political Violence", Research Field 1 – Forms: Change and Continuity of Political Violence.
Regine Schwab's research focuses on Islamist and jihadist actors in
internationalized armed conflict, with a regional specialization on West
Asia. I am particularly concerned with structures and institutions these
actors (re)build, their behaviour and interaction with other groups but also
civilians and external actors, ideological changes, and violence against
civilians. I also research opportunities for engaging with militant Islamist
groups in order to de-escalate and resolve conflicts.
