Professor Braumoeller organizes the MESO lab (Modeling Emergent Social Order), a group of social-science graduate students who are interested in studying international order and international and subnational conflict using computational methods and translating the results for a general audience.
The MESO Lab is currently being funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York to undertake research in three major areas:
- Understanding the relationship between international order and international conflict
- Measuring international order
- Understanding connections between international and domestic order
