Abstract: Transboundary water governance literature has discussed the link between water scarcity and conflict. This neo-Malthusian perspective focuses on the physical scarcity of resources. This paper instead focuses on the notion of water scarcity, and how it i

Abstract: Is resource scarcity more likely to explain conflict onset and resource abundance more likely to explain conflict duration? Do the underlying dynamics of civil conflict differ when both scarcity- and abundance-related causes co-exist? Research on the micro-foundations of rebellion has singularly focused on resource abundance as a causal factor, exploring the conditions under which natural resources and their spatial distribution influence the dynamics of civil conflict between rebel movements and host governments. This paper extends research on the resource-conflict link, by explicitly incorporating the scarcity dimension. As such, I focus on Nigeria’s Niger Delta Region, a case which both embodies resource abundance—the large oil wealth of the region which generates over $10b in yearly revenue for the country—and resource scarcity—environmental devastation in the form of oil spills, gas fires, global warming, soil and water pollution, as well as the resulting competition for basic sustenance and public goods. In addition to defying the largely artificial ‘abundance versus scarcity’ distinction in the literature, the case also maps the complexity of underlying conflict—conflict between local communities, ethnic groups, insurgents, and the government—which has led to the emergence of new social cleavages, the deepening of existing cleavages, and the remapping of identity and concomitant rights.

Abstract: A laboratory experiment was conducted to determine the effect of exposure to varying media representations of partner availability on the traits women found desirable in potential romantic and sexual partners. After watching trailers for romantic comedies featuring either an abundance or scarcity of male prospective sexual partners, women indicated their interest in hypothetical sexual partners with characteristics typical of the Cad (e.g. aggressive, promiscuous) or Dad (e.g. kind, devoted, upright) for long-term and short-term relationships. Viewing either type of trailer caused a decline in interest in a Cad as partner, particularly for a short-term relationship, for most women. Viewing the abundance-framed trailers caused women with short-term relationship goals to be less interested in a partner with Dad traits; viewing the male scarcity trailers caused a similar reduction for women with long-term relationship goals. Women who saw the male abundance trailers also listed more superficial traits when describing their ideal partner.
