  1. "Political units with wider political participation engage in less warfare with one another than do less participatory political units" (579).Ember, Carol R. - Peace between participatory polities: a cross-cultural test of the "democrac..., 1992 - 9 Variables

    This article tests the effects of variables associated with political participation on the frequency of internal warfare. Findings suggest support for the hypothesis that democracies rarely fight each other.

  2. There will be a replication of the Ember et al. (1992) internal warfare worldwide findings in eastern African societies.Carol R. Ember - Warfare, atrocities, and political participation: eastern Africa, 2018 - 9 Variables

    The present study attempts to replicate the Ember, Ember, and Russett (1992) worldwide finding that fighting rarely occurs between democracies in a sample of eastern African societies. Following the earlier study, the authors considered internal warfare to be an analog of international warfare and measures of political participation analogous to democracy. The researchers also explore if there is an association between political participation and committing atrocities. Contrary to past findings, internal warfare was not predicted by the same set of variables as the 1992 study, but there is an inverse relationship between committing atrocities and political participation. However, when additional variables were added, internal warfare was significantly predicted by less political participation.

  4. Adding three additional variables-little formalized leadership, natural disasters, and state-level organization- to the eastern African comparison would lead to a replication of the Ember et al. (1992) findings.Carol R. Ember - Warfare, atrocities, and political participation: eastern Africa, 2018 - 11 Variables

  5. The frequency of warfare will be negatively associated with consultation, checks on power, removal of leaders, extent of political participation, and absence of fission and positively associated with population (108).Russett, Bruce - The democratic peace in nonindustrial societies, 1993 - 7 Variables

    This study examines the relationship between political participation and warfare, suggesting that checks on power, removal of leaders, extent of political participation, and absence of fission will be negatively associated with the frequency of warfare. This hypothesis was supported with empirical analysis.

  6. When tested individually, each of the twelve variables included in the composite "authoritarian governance" variable in the cross-cultural sample will be predicted by pathogen prevalence (5).Murray, Damian R. - Pathogens and politics: further evidence that parasite prevalence predicts a..., 2013 - 16 Variables

    This article employs cross-national and cross-cultural methods to investigate whether pathogen stress is a direct determinant of authoritarianism. The study controls on other factors such as famine, warfare, and malnutrition and evaluates alternative causal models.

  7. "The greater the limitations society places on the open expression of opposition, the more likely the occurrence of annual rituals of conflict" (857).Dirks, Robert - Annual rituals of conflict, 1988 - 5 Variables

    This article explores the factors that predict rituals of conflict. Hypotheses are derived from Gluckman's analysis of Southeast African rituals of rebellion and are tested against a cross-cultural sample.

  8. Corporal punishment of children will be more likely where warfare frequency is "more than rare" (615).Ember, Carol R. - Explaining corporal punishment of children: a cross-cultural study, 2005 - 6 Variables

    This article tests various explainations for corporal punishment of children, including social complexity, a societal culture of violence, and whether help in child rearing is available. Analysis suggests that corporal punishment may be a parent's way to prepare children for societal power inequality.
