The results of the previous study of the Brain-Based Approach to Peace, conducted during the peak of the Lebanon war and showing decreased war deaths in Lebanon, were subsequently replicated in seven consecutive experiments over a two-year period, also at the height of the war.
The results of these interventions included:
∙ war-related fatalities decreased by 71% (p < 10-10)
∙ war-related injuries fell by 68% (p < 10-6)
∙ the level of conflict dropped by 48% (p < 10-8)
∙ cooperation among antagonists increased by 66% (p < 10-6)
The likelihood that these combined results were due to chance is less than one part in 1019, making this approach of reducing societal stress and conflict the most rigorously established approach in the history of conflict management.
