Author(s): Christopher Macaulay and Paul R. Hensel

Topics: Conflict Causes, Extractive Resources, Governance, Land

Added: 08/10/2017

 

Studies of interstate territorial conflict have recognized natural resources as one of the elements that makes many territories "salient" or valuable to the claimant states. These studies have generally treated all resources as equivalent, though, with no distinction made between issues based on their value or renewability. We suggest that...

Author(s): Simon Dalby

Topics: Climate Change, Conflict Causes

Added: 01/10/2017

 

Human insecurity is a matter of both environmental and social circumstances. In recent decades concerns with environmental change and its possible impacts on human societies have been linked to policy discussions of security. Scholarly analyses of resources, environment, change, and conflict suggest that these are far from simple linkages; scarcities...

Author(s): Jon Barnett

Added: 01/10/2017

 

Despite it being the most studied and arguably most profound of global environmental change problems, there is relatively little research that explores climate change as a security issue. This paper systematically explores the range of possible connections between climate change and security, including national security considerations, human security concerns, military...

This paper studies the effects of long-term climate change on the dynamics of violent conflict in the Kenyan crisis of 2007-2008. Climate change has been found to worsen livelihood conditions in East Africa, leading to a higher competition for resources and increased intergroup tensions. This, in turn, leads to a...

We judge that the overall risk of food insecuritya in many countries of strategic importance to the United States will increase during the next 10 years because of production, transport, and market disruptions to local food availability, lower purchasing power, and counterproductive government policies. Demographic shifts and constraints on key...

On Malaria and the Duration of Civil War

On Malaria and the Duration of Civil War

Source: Journal of Conflict Resolution, 2014

Author(s): Benjamin Bagozzi

Topics: Conflict Causes

Added: 26/09/2017

 

Geographic factors such as rugged terrain and distance from capital cities are widely believed to prolong civil wars by enabling rebel groups to resist total defeat. This article argues that prevalence of malaria can similarly serve to asymmetrically enhance rebels’ defensive capabilities and thus prolong civil war. Malaria prevalence does...

Scholars note that rebel atrocities against civilians often arise within rural areas in the developing world. This characterization is not far-fetched, and recent data show that rebel atrocities do predominately occur within rural agricultural regions. Yet the frequency of such incidents also varies substantially across different agricultural regions and years....
