Professor Fujii specializes in political conflict and violence. Her research focuses on local level violence that occurs during ethnic conflict and war. She is the author of Killing Neighbors: Webs of Violence in Rwanda (Cornell University Press 2009). Her work has also appeared in Security Studies, Nationalities Papers, Journal of Genocide Research, and Journal of Peace Research (forthcoming). Her work has been supported by funding from Fulbright, the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, and a Dilthey Faculty Fellowship from the Columbian College of Arts & Sciences at George Washington University. She is currently working on a new project that compares local participation in violence and atrocities across multiple cases.
