Special Issue of “Conflict Management and Peace Science” Published!
In June 2015, a conference was held at the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy entitled New Directions in the Study of Territory and Political Violence. Original research on territorial conflict and conflict resolution was presented and discussed. The highlights of this conference are presented in a forthcoming special issue of Conflict Management and Peace Science edited by Baker Fellows Brandon Prins and Krista Wiegand. Three themes emerge from the special issue:
- New and exciting advancements are being made in the collection of data on the classification and characteristics of territorial disputes.
- Border delimitation appears to significantly affect a broad array of inter-state interactions.
- The perception of threat and the bargaining environment affect and relate to the territorial dimension of armed conflict.
A summary of the research published in the special issue can be found at Political Violence at a Glance (here).
