Alex Braithwaite's research and teaching focus upon the causes and contagion of violent and nonviolent conflict, including terrorism, protests, riots, civil war, and international wars. He is also very much interested in forced migration and refugee flows, the location of refugee and concentration camps, and border politics. This includes interest in matters related to migration and control at the US-Mexico border, as well as the root causes for migration from Central America and Mexico to the US.
