From 2008-2014, I led the research group “Music, Conflict and the State” at the University of Göttingen. A report summarising some of the group’s main achievements can be downloaded here:

One of the main research focuses in the latter years of the group’s existence was the use of music in torture. At www.social-musicology.net you can find some information and resources on this topic, which is regularly updated.
