Our Mission

When a human being kills another human being, we are likely to call this murder, consider it a crime and may believe the murderer is suffering from a form of psychopathology. When leaders murder human beings in the name of nation-states, on the other hand, killing rarely is viewed in these terms. This Foundation will explore political mass-murder and the question of why killings performed under the rubric of nation-states are not conceived as abnormal. We investigate what may be considered the psychopathology of normality.
