Questions related to Civil War
Dear, I am aware of literature regarding the correlation between higher level of violence against civilians and foreign fighters presence (for example Bakke 2014, Moore 2019, Doctor and Willingham 2020, Doctor 2021, ...). I was wondering if there is anything that compares (also with qualitative methods) IS foreign fighters and IS local fighters in their relations with the locals in Syria and Iraq.
Hello friends I hope you all are doing well,
Dear Seniors, I am a PhD aspirant in Civil Wars Studies and new to this area.
I request experienced scholars in the field to please suggest me some good books/articles readings for understanding the basics in the area.
Any suggestion about good articles/books on the Research Methods in Civil Wars studies would also be welcomed.
Yemen recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, on April 10. Half of all medical facilities in the country are not functioning, so it is not clear how much testing for the virus is available.
In the report https://www.who.int/docs/default-source/coronaviruse/situation-reports/20200418-sitrep-89-covid-19.pdf?sfvrsn=3643dd38_2, covid 19 seems to low compared to other countries.
The country, already the poorest in the Middle East before its civil war started five years ago, is also badly positioned to treat victims of the respiratory virus, while protecting its health care workers.

I am working one a civil war final paper for my graduate course. I am interested in examining the dynamics of Sengal civil war.
First, I will be exploring the root causes of civil war from 1982-2014. What are the difference contexts and greivances that trigger the civil war?
As the main conflict essentially ended in 2014 with a ceasefire, I will then go on to explore how that ceasefire was initiated and access the effectiveness of the stabilization/nation-building elements within this ceasefire period.
However, despite ceasfire in place, low-level violence remains and the problem seems to be unresolved. This leads me to my last part, why the previous ceasefire manage to successfully end the war, but not mitigating the unrest in the region altogether. In other words, why is 2014 ceasefire successful in reducing violence but why the major problems unsolved leading to current low-level violence in Senegal? In short, this last part will explore why 2014 ceasefure is not perfect?
I am urgently in need of literature for that, any form of assistance will be highly appreciated. Thank you!
I am conducting a qualitative content analysis research that wants to prove that the Nigeria civil war of 1967-1970 was a social revolution sustained by strategic communication. Do I need a qualitative data to back my findings? Must I use the Nvivo metrics procedure to do the analysis?
Was the civil war in Iraq (the Northern War) and the civil war in Lebanon in the 1970s part of the new Middle East project and the U.S.-Israel alliance to strike Arab countries from within to weaken them?
I am looking on literature analysing how Islamic State recruited civilian experts as computer technician, experts in managing public goods, doctors, nurses... from Western countries. Is there anything in the literature? I am not looking on fighters' recruiting but on civilian experts in order to improve rebel governance expertise.
I intend to apply the method of process-tracing (explaining outcome).
Thank You all in advance
We from the third world fall under the many difficulties and obstacles that hinder our academic work and especially civil wars that do not end, for us the science of mathematics, is the lung from which we breathe and feel with our presence on the back of this world. My question is, are there any organizations that can help us technically and financially in our university, the University of Aden, in establishing and running the master's and doctorate programs in mathematics?
I am doing my masters in INRM in Berlin and for a term paper on nature conservation and civil war we would like to dig into the FARC case.
I am looking for a theory that can explain the effect of multiple and various external interventions within the same civil wars. By external intervention, I mean military intervention in favor of either belligerent party, economic sanctions, and mediations. I am willing to test the effect of interventionary patterns in which single and multiple external interventions are sequenced. Some examples of patterns include only diplomatic, military-diplomatic, military-economic patterns etc.
I've seen some literature on FDIs before or after civil wars, but I'm curious as to whether anyone is aware of circumstances in which investors came in prior to the outbreak of a civil war and stayed for the duration of the war. If so, what type (sector) of investors were they?
Just a question about civil war in Latin America. Did Nicaraguan civil war (1979-1990) and Guatemalan civil war (1960-1996) take place across their whole territory?
Btw, is it correct to call what happened in Nicaragua and Guatemala as civil war but what happened in Colombia (FARC) and Peru (Shining Path) as low-intensity guerrilla war/armed conflicts?
My reasoning is that the relative intensity of the wars in Nicaragua and Guatemala is heavier than those in Colombia and Peru.
but I am not sure if I am right.
I've just had the time to pare down my thesis down to around 3000 words and am looking for a suitable 'home' for it. Essentially, using both quantitative and qualitative analyses, my research evaluates the Turkish risk perception of Syrian refugee inflow, utilizing cultural cognition as a theoretical spring board. The abstract is below:
Syrian refugee’s and risk perception in Izmir, Turkey: Understanding Turkish attitudes through the evaluation of cultural cognition
Since early 2011, Syria has been undergoing a brutal civil war, displacing millions within the country and forcing others to seek protection in adjacent countries. Turkey, amongst other regional refugee-hosting countries, has taken in the bulk of Syrian forced migrants. The impact of these refugees on Turkey, still developing as time goes on, is largely undocumented amidst the development of Turkish attitudes towards this group of over two million migrants. This exploratory research sought to investigate these attitudes, utilising cultural cognition as a theoretical sounding board. Delimited to the city of Izmir, the aims of this research were to ascertain what perceived risks Syrian refugees pose onto Turkish society, how these perceptions relate to worldview adherences amongst Turkish citizens and what psychological processes may explain the development of such perceptions. Using a mixed-methods approach, the research found statistical significance between the perception of inflow and social risks posed by Syrian refugees and the hierarchist and egalitatrian worldviews. To explore the development of such perceptions of risk, the processes of identity-protective cognition and reactive devaluation were utilised to explicate the data

In this respect, radicalism associated with identity refers to any `essential` attitude that attempts to reject the `other` who is different from the self. In fact, this kind of fundamentalism has led to several civil wars as well as disintegration especially in the third world.
what are the possibilities of cessation of southern Nigeria from the Nigerian state in the light of brexit and neo nationalist global politics?
I'd be happy to have your suggestions on reading materials focuses on Afghanistan-based Uzbeks from 1979 to 2001.
The civil war is most probably one of the best researched conflicts in world history. However, there is still a lot of space for discussion and speculation.
Hope that this is scientific enough as a topic for discussion?
Chunnakam aquifer in Jaffna Sri Lanka is contaminated with nitrate for long period by high usage of agrochemicals. Last couple of years, due to a thermal power station the aquifer is contaminated with used oil by this power station.
Now some people in developed countries are trying to say there is no harmful oil contamination for human constitution in the ground water by testing with FROG 5000.
The following two protest is there among the academic society about the FROG 5000 field equipment
1. Nitrate contamination will give low BTEX levels
2. All the BTEX volatile contents of the Oils in Chunnakam water will evaporate away and will show ZERO results with much more tests by the Famous FROG 4000
I want guidance and advice from all of you
I am attaching one report published by National Water Supply and Drainage Board and a report of Institution of Engineers Northern Chapter on this issue.
These two reports will give you a very good insight of this problem

I am familiar with COW and ACD, and recently I also had a look at Banks' Cross-National Time-Series Data Archive. The latter seemed promising but is not exactly what I am looking for.
What I am looking for is a database which codes wars according to the way they are fought, e.g. 0 for mostly conventional, 1 for unconventional/ assymetric/ guerilla however you want to call it. Banks seems to list the number of ambushes etc. staged per year. That is nice, but it does not tell me whether the war itself was predominantly fought with guerilla or conventional tactics.
If anyone knows of such a dataset I would be very grateful if you could tell me! If you think, as I do by now, that this does not exist, please write me, too!
we have witnessed the rise of fundamentalist forces around the world, most notably, in west Asia.Why UN and other powers(Russia , China ,India) have not extended their explicit support ?
I am researching on the role of the Nigerian railways in the Nigerian Civil War. I am looking for materials on how the Nigerian forces and the Biafran armies appropriated the railways to achieve or sabotage the war.
I am particularly interested in texts that describe how the railways were used in transporting troops and materials; what and what were transported on the railways and how the government controlled the system during the war. I am also interested in text that describes or suggests killings of Igbo and other Nigerian groups in transit, as well as how the Biafran forces used the system to scuttle the Nigerian forces or achieve their mission.
I also welcome suggestions on texts with further insights on the role of railways/ transport and logistic in warfare on comparative level.
I Thank you in anticipation of your response,
Does anyone information about the legacy (memories, archives, letters and so on) of Coronel Casado, Besides the published books everybody knows? I mean:
Casado, Segismundo (1977) Así cayó Madrid, Madrid, ediciones 99.
Currently doing field research on the impact of armed conflict on women in conflict-affected areas in the Sudan, we are proposing a literature review as part of the introductory chapters of the research, seeking assistance on the most recent theoretical work done on this area.
The business operated in Manhattan from the Early National - post Civil War period and dealt in hardware and plate glass imports. It was located on Maiden Lane (94 Maiden Lane but included at times adjacent buildings).
Besides the landmark study on the building and brief references to CVS Roosevelt in various secondary sources on the Roosevelt family, can anyone lead me to any primary sources? I am curious (and question the accuracy of the statement) about how secondary source claims that the company achieved a monopoly on the import of plate glass. I want to understand how the business operated. I know family members sometimes traveled to take orders but did they use jobbers, and how did they operate?
The company received most of their shipments from Liverpool but bought glass from France, England, and Germany. How did that work? Did they have a representative abroad? When plate glass arrived in New York, how was it transported and stored? Did they only order by the job or did they keep an inventory in their maiden lane warehouse? Was the plate glass stored on upper floors and the office on the ground floor? Different sources say the plate glass import part of the business was sold to the Briish firm in 1876 (date?). Which firm? How did they advertise their wares? Also, family members sometimes operated additional hardware import companies including one titled Roosevelt & Company. Were they rivals or connected?
Any sources (business or otherwise) about CVS Roosevelt (Cornelius V. S. Roosevelt, or Cornelius van Schaack -- sometimes spelled Schaick) would be most appreciated. He had a "mansion" on Union Square at Broadway and 14th St. until his death in 1871.
He had a son and a grandson with the same name unfortunately. Also any info on the business dealings of Theodore Roosevelt Sr (the presdient's father).
Burma has adopted a Constitution in 2008, which features fake federal system. It has a long history of ethnic conflict between majority Burman and many other ethnic minority groups. The political system under the current Constitution is 2008 semi-presidentialism (literally, it is not correct to say).
