Guy Schvitz is a PhD candidate at the International Conflict Research group. He holds an MA in Comparative and International Studies from ETH Zürich (2015) and a BA in Political Science and Modern History from the University of Zürich (2011). In his dissertation, he examines under which conditions transborder ethnic groups become prone to violent conflict. In particular, he focuses on the historical roots of contemporary irredentism, and on the contextual factors that help explain its violent escalation. Together with other researchers at ETH Zürich and the University of Essex, he is currently also working on a GIS dataset on state borders and colonial territories since 1885.
