Funding Conflict? An Examination of How Resource Prices Affect Conflict and Conflict Management

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The rise of a global economy has given new pathways to old problems. Since the end of the cold war, conflicts have gone in search of new ways to fund their violence. This article examines one manner in which both rebel groups and the governments seek to obtain funding. It suggests that price fluctuations in conflict funding resources directly correspond to conflict intensity and the success of conflict management. A theoretical framework for the disintegration of funds from the marketplace to the battlefield is conducted, and the causal linkage between increased funding and increased intensity is explained. A logical explanation of how price fluctuations affect the likelihood of a conflict management attempt becoming successful is created. The purposed relationships are, a rise in resource price from outside markets results in an increase of conflict intensity within the conflicts funded by the same resource; and a rise in resource price from outside markets should result a decrease in the probability of successful conflict management. A systematic examination is undertaken between price, intensity and conflict management. Market prices for several resources are obtained, intensity measures created, and conflict management success variables coded. Ordinary least squares regression and logit cross-sectional time series statistical analysis are performed to empirically test the proposed relationships.
