Why do people go to war, and why do they behave so brutally during warfare? The recent conflict in the Balkans has brought these uncomfortable questions back into focus for people in Europe. Psychology is the study of human behaviour and experience so it ought to give us some answers to these questions. This article looks at what reasons psychology gives for warfare, and also looks at some of the ways that psychology has been used in warfare.
