The Political Economy of Armed Conflict: Beyond Greed and Grievance

Globalization, suggest the authors of this collection, is creating new opportunities-some legal, some illicit-for armed factions to pursue their agendas in civil war. Within this context, they analyze the key dynamics of war economies and the challenges posed for conflict resolution and sustainable peace. Thematic chapters consider key issues in the political economy of internal wars, as well as how differing types of resource dependency influence the scope, character, and duration of conflicts. Case studies of Burma, Colombia, Kosovo, Papua New Guinea, and Sri Lanka illustrate a range of ways in which belligerents make use of global markets and the transnational flow of resources. An underlying theme is the opportunities available to the international community to alter the economic incentive structure that inadvertently supports armed conflict.

  1. I absolutely love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.
    Did you make this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m
    looking to create my own personal blog and would like to find out where you got this from or exactly what the theme is named.
    Thank you!

  2. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article
    seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I
    thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
    Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

  3. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My
    blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my
    authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.

  4. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It’s always interesting to read through content from other writers and practice something from
    their sites.

  5. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
    Did you create this website yourself or did you hire
    someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to
    construct my own blog and would like to find out where
    u got this from. thanks a lot

  6. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each
    time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!

  7. Awesome blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any forums that cover the same topics talked
    about here? I’d really like to be a part of community where I can get feedback
    from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!
