If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dieter Lukas.

In this seminar, I will discuss the evolution of intergroup relationships in humans—why did intergroup relationships evolve in the human lineage? When do intergroup relationships form: what are the relevant social and ecological factors? How can we employ this understanding to inform policy?

I will combine results from fieldwork with the assistance of horticulturalists in the Bolivian Amazon with a review of the ecological selection pressures favoring inter-group tolerance across primates.
