Conflict Complexes and Conflict Resolution

Wallensteen, Peter and Margareta Sollenberg 1998. ‘Armed Conflict and Regional Conflict Complexes, 1989–1997’, Journal of Peace Research, 35: 593–606.

Building on early results of the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) the two authors observed the connections between different conflicts, particularly with respect to regional settings.  Thus, they coined the term ‘regional conflict complexes’.
