An initiative focused on international collaboration
The Center for Psychological Gun Research is a loosely affiliated network of academic scientists who study the psychological causes and consequences of gun ownership and use in societies. Its members are interested in the development of practical theories that can inform individual responsibility and safety-oriented decision making. Yet they are also interested in the study of guns for the purpose of gaining general broader insights into human psychology. The researchers have lived and worked across North America, Europe, and Israel, which brings a wide range of scientific interests and perspectives on this globally relevant issue.
