    Chapter 1, Part II: The Political Economy of Violent Conflict

    05 May 2016. 

    With violent conflict rapidly changing the strategic landscape in many parts of the world, new perspectives are required to inform analysis and policy responses. This essay focuses on how a political-economy perspective could provide policy­makers with a means to better understand the organisational aspects of armed groups and the behaviour and motives of their members, often vaguely labelled ‘terrorists’, ‘warlords’ or ‘criminals’. The practical value of this perspective rests on delineating the functions of violence, the characteristics of armed groups and the financing of conflict – all of which help to develop a better understanding of conflict dynamics in fluid and turbulent circumstances. These perspectives can build on over two decades of work on the political economy of violent conflict.
