  • Diplomatic documents data for international relations: the Freedom of
           Information Archive Database
    • Authors: Matthew J Connelly, Raymond Hicks, Robert Jervis, Arthur Spirling, Clara H Suong
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      We introduce the Freedom of Information Archive (FOIArchive) Database, a collection of over 3 million documents about state diplomacy. Substantively, our database focusses on the USA and provides opportunities to analyze previously classified (or publicly unavailable) corpora of internal government documents which include the raw—often full—text of those documents. We also provide within-country diplomatic records for the USA, UK, and Brazil. The full span of the data is 1620–2013, but it is mainly from the twentieth century. Our database allows scholars to view text and associated statistics online and to download and view customized datasets via an application programming interface. We provide extensive metadata about the documents, including the countries and persons they mention, and their topics and classification levels. The metadata includes information we extracted with domain-specific, customized natural language processing tools. To demonstrate the potential of this data, we use it to design and validate a new index for “country importance” in the context of US foreign policy priorities.

  • How mediator leadership transitions influence mediation effectiveness
    • Authors: Marius Mehrl, Tobias Böhmelt
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      Little is known about how transitions in the government of mediators affect conflict dynamics and resolution. To address this shortcoming, we study executive turnovers of mediators during ongoing interventions in civil war. Mediation effectiveness is largely driven by (trustworthy) information provision and sharing. Changes in mediators’ leaderships have the potential to undermine this, lowering mediation performance. Using data on civil conflicts in 1946–2017, we find robust support for this argument. This research sheds light on a previously neglected factor in conflict resolution that is of particular interest to practitioners and policymakers.

  • Teaching from experience: foreign training and rebel success in civil War
    • Authors: Eric Keels, Jay Benson, Michael Widmeier
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      This paper addresses the relationship between rebel training from external sponsors and civil war outcomes. While past research has examined how foreign support, broadly, shapes the dynamics of civil wars, little attention has been paid to how foreign training of rebel fighters affects civil wars. We theorize that rebels that receive training from formerly successful rebels are more likely to experience favorable conflict outcomes than those with no training or with training from sponsors inexperienced with fighting a civil war. These propositions are tested with a quantitative analysis of all intrastate conflicts from 1975 to 2010, providing support for our hypothesis.

  • Politics of interconfessional empathy and Schadenfreude in Lebanon
    • Authors: Konstantin Ash, Thomas M. Dolan
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      We analyze the sources of two politically relevant, yet opposing emotions: empathy and Schadenfreude. We propose that group and individual-level political factors affect empathy and Schadenfreude toward other groups. Using a survey experiment conducted in Lebanon we find that, when presented with a prompt about political repression, respondents are less likely to express empathy and more likely to express Schadenfreude when victims of political repression were from the out-group perceived as their group’s most recent antagonist. At the individual level, those more involved in their in-group’s community are generally more likely to feel Schadenfreude and less likely to express empathy.

  • Democratic breakdown and terrorism
    • Authors: Joshua Tschantret
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      Democracy is one of the most consistent predictors of terrorism. Yet we know little about why there is an apparent relationship between terrorism and democracy. In this article, I argue that previous democratic breakdown is a significant predictor of terrorism. While democratic civil liberties increase the opportunity to carry out terrorist attacks, they do not explain why groups are motivated to use terrorism rather than legal means for implementing change. Democratic breakdown, however, creates grievances that motivate terrorism by excluding groups with full rights of participation from the political process. Such grievances, which persist over long periods of time, will lead to high levels of terrorism once the regime re-democratizes, since the motivation for political violence is combined with the opportunities provided by democratic civil liberties. Cross-national statistical evidence from 1970 to 2007 lends strong support for this argument. It further demonstrates that only democracies that have experienced democratic breakdown experience more terrorism than autocracies. Moreover, an extreme bounds analysis indicates that previous democratic breakdown is one of the most robust predictors of terrorism and the most robust among variables conceptually related to democracy.

  • Grievances and rebellion: Comparing relative deprivation and horizontal
           inequality
    • Authors: David Siroky, Carolyn M. Warner, Gabrielle Filip-Crawford, Anna Berlin, Steven L. Neuberg
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      Social science answers to the essential question of group conflict have focused on two main explanations—their motivating “grievances” and their mobilization “capacity” for collective action. Recent years have seen a renewed focus on grievances in the form of horizontal inequalities (between-group inequality), but the important conceptual and potential empirical differences between horizontal inequality and relative deprivation have not yet been incorporated into this discussion fully. This article first discusses these distinctions, and then assesses how they influence collective violence using new global evidence. Consistent with the theoretical discussion, the empirical results indicate that these concepts are not substitutes, and indeed are only weakly correlated, but rather tap into distinct aspects of grievance. The paper discusses the implications of these results, validates them in a series of robustness checks, and concludes with possible extensions along with future directions.

  • Displacement and the expectation of political violence: Evidence from
           Bosnia
    • Authors: Akisato Suzuki, Djordje Stefanovic, Neophytos Loizides
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      How do different degrees of displaced people’s hardship shape their expectations of peace and violence in post-conflict societies' We develop a novel explanation and empirically examine it using survey data collected in Bosnia Herzegovina in 2013. The displaced may suffer by being the target of the hostility of opposing groups and/or by receiving little support from, or being mistreated by, their own groups and international actors. As a result, they develop negative opinions about these actors, friend and foe alike, become pessimistic about the possibility of cooperation, and see post-conflict peace as unsustainable. We find those who have suffered greater hardship during displacement are more likely to foresee political violence. Hardship during displacement is also a stronger predictor than the experience of violence. Our analysis implies that, while violence does have an impact as suggested by the literature, other hardship during displacement, such as the lack of support, also matters.

  • Precrisis military hostility and escalation in international crises
    • Authors: Luba Levin-Banchik
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      Why do some international crises escalate into violence while others do not' I argue that an understanding of crisis behavior necessitates awareness of the processes preceding a crisis and propose two mechanisms that link precrisis hostility with crisis violence. The population fatigue mechanism suggests that precrisis hostility interrupts the everyday life of a population, strengthening its demand for a harsher response. If leaders behave with restraint during a crisis and after the crisis hostilities resume, leaders risk facing greater dissatisfaction from their now even more fatigued population. The baseline for resolve mechanism suggests that if states are actively hostile before a crisis, they must maintain hostility during a crisis to credibly demonstrate resolve. Findings on international crises between 1918 and 2010 support the interphase relationship: a crisis escalation is significantly more likely after a hostile precrisis period. The behavior of opponents can indicate how crises might unfold even before they begin.

  • Public opinion, international reputation, and audience costs in an
           authoritarian regime
    • Authors: Xiaojun Li, Dingding Chen
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      Does the public in authoritarian regimes disapprove of their leaders’ backing down from public threats and commitments' Answers to this question provide a critical micro-foundation for the emerging scholarship on authoritarian audience costs. We investigate this question by implementing a series of survey experiments in China, a single-party authoritarian state. Findings based on responses from 5375 Chinese adults show that empty threats and commitments expose the Chinese government to substantial disapproval from citizens concerned about potential damage to China’s international reputation. Additional qualitative evidence reveals that Chinese citizens are willing to express their discontent of leaders’ foreign policy blunders through various channels. These findings contribute to the ongoing debate over whether and how domestic audiences can make commitments credible in authoritarian states.

  • Economic sanctions and income inequality: impacts of trade restrictions
           and foreign aid suspension on target countries
    • Authors: Jin Mun Jeong
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      This research examines the relationship between economic sanctions and income inequality of sanctioned states. Economic sanctions have a discernible effect on target income inequality. I argue that such an effect significantly varies across sanctions instruments and economic conditions of sanctioned countries. Data analysis for 152 countries from 1974 to 2011 shows that import sanctions increase inequality of labor-abundant targets, but such an effect disappears in labor-scarce targets, whereas the findings provide no reliable evidence for the effect of export sanctions. The results also suggest that foreign aid sanctions reduce the inequality of targets that are significantly dependent on foreign assistance.

  • The legacy of war: The effect of militias on postwar repression
         This is an Open Access Article Open Access Article

    • Authors: Sabine C Carey, Belén González
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      How do wartime legacies affect repression after the conflict ends' Irregular forces support the government in many civil wars. We argue that if this link continues after the war, respect for human rights declines. As “tried and tested” agents they are less likely to shirk when given the order to repress. Governments might also keep the militias as a “fall-back option”, which results in more repression. Analyzing data from 1981 to 2014 shows that pro-government militias that were inherited from the previous conflict are consistently associated with worse repression, but newly created ones are not. Wartime pro-government militias target a broader spectrum of the population and are linked to worse state violence. New militias usually supplement wartime ones and use violence primarily against political opponents. This study highlights the detrimental impact of war legacies.

  • Fiscal weakness, the (under-) provision of public services, and
           institutional reform
    • Authors: Manuel Oechslin, Mauricio Rodriguez
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      The fact that many developing countries spend little on growth-promoting public services is often blamed on “fiscal weakness”. We propose a novel framework to study the consequences of an exogenous improvement in public revenues. We demonstrate that higher revenues may induce the group in power to use a dual repression approach, one pillar of which is to aggravate the “underspending” on growth-promoting public services. However, we also identify circumstances in which the group in power will abstain from repression and instead opt for institutional reform. This result contrasts with the view that exogenous revenue improvements necessarily undercut growth-promoting institutions.JEL classification: D70; O11; F53; H50; Q34

  • The reintegration of ex-combatants and post-conflict violence. An analysis
           of municipal crime levels in Colombia
    • Authors: Andrea González Peña, Han Dorussen
      Abstract: Conflict Management and Peace Science, Ahead of Print.
      Violent crime in Colombia is analyzed following the demobilization of ex-combatants using municipal-level data. The main findings are that an increased presence of ex-combatants does not systematically increase homicides, but may increase robberies. Reintegration programs are shown to matter. Former paramilitaries who are not in a reintegration program increase crime. Former guerillas increase robberies, regardless of whether they are in or out of reintegration, but homicides decrease for guerrillas in reintegration. Ex-combatants often settle in municipalities with more crime. Controlling for reverse causality, ex-combatants only increase crime if they are not in reintegration, while in reintegration they may reduce crime.
