Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies - Who We Are
Dr. Victoroff studied the Great Books at St. John's College (BA '74), began his graduate studies in social sciences at the University of Chicago (MA '78), then attended medical school at Case Western Reserve University (MD '82). He trained at Harvard in Neurology and Psychiatry and is board certified in both. He completed his fellowship in Neurobehavior at UCLA. He began his academic career at the University of Southern California studying behavioral complications of neurological conditions, with a focus on aggression. Following 9/11, he made a decision to combine his background in social science and neurobehavior to investigate the biopsychosocial bases of human conflict, violence, oppression and terrorism. His current research includes review of the empirically based understanding of motivations for substate terrorism, studies of social and neurological factors in violent and terrorist behavior, piloting the first self-rated questionnaire for perceived oppression, and collaborations with the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme to investigate social, psychological, and neuroendocrine factors in children living through the Intifada. He is also developing a prospective research project to determine how interventions to improve tolerance and reduce prejudice might influence sympathy for terrorism among young people living in oppression. He is a member of the UN Roster of Terrorism Experts, a member of the Organizing Committee for the Madrid Summit on Terrorism, and the Director of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Social and Psychological Factors in the Genesis of Terrorism. He serves as Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology and Psychiatry at the USC Keck School of Medicine and Director of the Neuropsychiatry Clinic. His most recent pertinent publications is: "The Mind of the Terrorist: A Review and Critique of Psychological Approaches" (Journal of Conflict Resolution, 2005).

Dr Jeff Victoroff, Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology and Psychiatry, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California,Many thanks again for your remarkable work in organizing the International Assembly.
In 2005, Jeff Victoroff, a University of Southern California psychologist, concluded that the leading terrorism research was mostly just political theory and anecdotes.
"A lack of systematic scholarly investigation has left policy makers to design counterterrorism strategies without the benefit of facts," he wrote in The Journal of Conflict Resolution.
Dr. Jeff Victoroff, a forensic psychiatrist at the University of Southern California, sees the roots of such behavior in evolutionary terms: Since banding together in groups, humans and other primates have sought to show their dominance in a bid to survive and reproduce, and whether one achieved status by good works or brutality did not always matter.
