Weick, M. and Vasiljevic, M. and Uskul, A. K. and Moon, C. (2017) 'Stuck in the heat or stuck in the hierarchy? Power relations explain regional variations in violence.', Behavioral and brain sciences., 40 . e102.

Focusing on hierarchical relations, we argue countries with higher (vs. lower) power distance are, on average, located closer to the equator, have more challenging climates (i.e., higher temperature; lower temperature variation) and a greater prevalence of violence and aggression (i.e., higher homicide rates).
