Peace and Conflict 2014

Welcome to Peace and Conflict 2014, CIDCM's biennial publication providing key data and documenting trends in national and international conflicts.

Regular features include chapters that forecast the future risks of political and social instability, as well as report trends and patterns in conflict, democratization, and terrorism.

The special theme of the 2014 edition is the trend toward focusing on the micro level in the study of conflict and peacebuilding. Chapters addressing this theme examine the finely grained relationships observed below the level of nation-states, with attention to key topics such as ethnicity, climate, foreign aid, sexual violence, mass atrocities, and humanitarian and reconstruction responses.

Peace and Conflict is a large-format, full-color resource with numerous graphs, tables, maps, and appendices dedicated to the visual and summary presentation of information. Crisp narratives are highlighted with pull-quote extracts emphasizing major findings.

Contributors to Peace and Conflict 2014 include Ravi Bhavnani, Joshua Busby, Lars-Erik Cederman, Karsten Donnay, Laura Dugan, Erica Frantz, Elena Gadjanova, Luc Girardin, Amelia Hoover Green, Gary LaFree, Patrick Meier, Phuong Pham, Clionadh Raleigh, Idean Salehyan, Patrick Vinck, and Julian Wucherpfennig.

The full report is available in bookstores and from Paradigm Publishers (www.paradigmpublishers.com).
