Hawks and Doves: Democratic Peace Theory Revisited

Political scientist Femke Bakker (Leiden University) addresses this question from a political psychological and comparative perspective and tests the microfoundations of democratic peace theory simultaneously with alternative theories of decision-making in conflict situations.
