Mobilization and Modus Operandi of Rebel Groups
Understanding the characteristics of rebel groups is crucial to comprehensive analyses of civil wars and effective peace-building policies. In order to devise better peace settlement strategies in different contexts, this project will first gather systematic information about the characteristics of rebel groups (mobilization and recruitment characteristics, organizational structure, and modus operandi) for cross-case comparisons. We will then flesh out the trends discovered in the comparative analysis through case analyses of conflict ridden regions.
Project leader: Scott Gates
The project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
