Taylor (Peace & Conflict Studies) has received a subcontract to work on two related projects, “Children and Political Violence,” funded by the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development, and “Growing up on an Interface: Findings and Implications for the Social Needs, Mental Health and Lifetime Opportunities for Belfast Youth,” funded by the government of Northern Ireland. This research advances knowledge about the mechanisms through which political violence affects children. Her social ecological approach considers the impact that family and community conditions have on child development in a setting of intergroup conflict.
