Routledge Studies in Civil Wars and Intra-State Conflict


About the Series

This series publishes theoretically rigorous and empirically original scholarship on all aspects of armed intrastate conflict, including its causes, nature, impacts, patterns of violence, and resolution. It also publishes books which explore debates about the politics, sociological aspects and economics of civil wars, and their international dimensions. The series has a broad intellectual remit designed to be open to a range of academic methodologies and interests, including innovative empirical approaches, and welcomes work on specific armed conflicts and the micro-dynamics of violence, on broad patterns and cross-national analyses of civil wars, and on historical perspectives as well as contemporary challenges. It also seeks to explore the policy implications of conflict analysis, especially as it relates to international security, intervention and peacebuilding.
