In the NIOD Rewind podcast on war & violence, Anne van Mourik and Thijs Bouwknegt interview scientists about the history of mass violence, war and genocide. During the interviews they discuss the research and background of these people. Who are they? Why are they studying the violent past? What is their research about? How do they conduct research? How is society reacting to this?

In this episode of the podcast NIOD Rewind, Anne van Mourik speaks with several of researchers about a new fellowship program. In collaboration with the NIAS, researchers of the NIOD Institute are teaming up with a group of international scholars, in order to develop an innovative and multidisciplinary research agenda in the field of the multiple connections between the topic of ‘war and society’ in the recent past - and in the world of today.

Why is it so important to investigate the past in light of the present? And how can we connect histories of mass violence with present-day societies?
