  1. Onset and offset of conflict will be affected by segmentary lineage systemsMoscona, Jacob - Social structure and conflict: Evidence from sub-Saharan Africa, 2017 - 11 Variables

    Using a sample of 145 African societies, the authors seek to examine the relationship between segmentary lineage organization and conflict. Presented is evidence supporting the claim that segmentary lineage societies are more prone to conflict and to conflicts larger in scale and duration. The authors aim to contribute to a better understanding of the determinants of conflict, and additionally address the applicability of the present study beyond Africa.

  2. There will be a relationship between the traditional presence of a segmentary lineage system and the presence and intensity of conflictMoscona, Jacob - Social structure and conflict: Evidence from sub-Saharan Africa, 2017 - 8 Variables

  3. The development of technology will be positively associatedwith increasing frequencies of external war, civil war, and riots (but feuding war will decrease as technology develops in society) (53)Leavitt, Gregory C. - The frequency of warfare: an evolutionary perspective, 1977 - 5 Variables

    Thi study tests a hypothesis on the relationship between frequency of warfare and sociocultural development.

  4. The increasing frequency of differentiation in societies will be positively associated with an increase in external war, civil war, and riots (feuding will decrease in frequency as societies become increasingly differentiated) (54)Leavitt, Gregory C. - The frequency of warfare: an evolutionary perspective, 1977 - 5 Variables

    Thi study tests a hypothesis on the relationship between frequency of warfare and sociocultural development.

  5. Territorial fractionalization will be positively correlated with violent conflict against ethnically distinct host government.Cederman, Lars-Erik - Redemption through Rebellion: Border Change, Lost Unity, and Nationalist Con..., 2022 - 2 Variables

    Using a new measure called "territorial fractionalization" to indicate the extent to which traditional societies are split across current states, the authors of this study propose that fragmentation of ethnic groups and ethnonationalism is key to understanding civil conflict. They find that higher measures of territorial fractionalization significantly predict a higher risk of civil conflict, and that greater increases in territorial fractionalization also predict greater risk of civil conflict. These results hold for a global sample of data from 1945 to 2017, as well as in European and African subsamples dating back to 1886.

  6. Non-ICM subjects will be more associated with conflict than non-ICM subjects.Lundy, Brandon D. - The Effectiveness of Indigenous Conflict Management Strategies in Localized ..., 2022 - 3 Variables

    This paper seeks to understand how the conflict resolution strategies of indigenous and non-indigenous groups differ in their efficacy. The authors suggest that indigenous methods of conflict resolution are more effective than non-indigenous methods by demonstrating that subjects from the Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM) associated with indigenous conflict management (ICM) will co-occur less frequently with OCM terms related to conflict than subjects related to non-ICM. They tested this by selecting OCM subjects that they felt best represented ICM, non-ICM, and instances of conflict and using chi-square tests to show how often these subjects co-occurred. They subsequently split up the "conflict" variable into four forms of conflict in order to show whether any of these forms might be more frequently found associated with ICM or non-ICM subjects. The results showed that conflict subjects were more likely to co-occur with non-ICM subjects, and that sociocultural/interpersonal conflicts were more likely to be associated with ICM subjects, whereas political conflicts were more likely to be associated with non-ICM subjects.

  8. OCM subjects identified with "conflict" can be grouped into four aspects of conflict: economic conflicts, sociocultural/interpersonal conflicts, legal/judicial conflicts, and political conflicts.Lundy, Brandon D. - The Effectiveness of Indigenous Conflict Management Strategies in Localized ..., 2022 - 1 Variables

  10. Warfare between polities will be positively associated with cultural tightnessJackson, Joshua Conrad - A global analysis of cultural tightness in non-industrial societies, 2020 - 2 Variables

    This article builds on previous cross-country and cross-state research into Tightness-Looseness (TL) theory, which proposes relationships between the incidence of ecological threat and cultural tightness, as well as tightness’ downstream effects on belief in a moralizing high god, inter-group contact and authoritarian leadership. To evaluate the generalizability of TL theory beyond complex cultures, the authors test these relationships among 86 nonindustrial societies from the ethnographic record. A structural equation model is presented of the results for nonindustrial societies; it is generally in accord with previous findings from more complex societies. Because the nonindustrial sample is more variable, they also look at relationships between societal complexity and kinship heterogeneity, aspects that vary in nonindustrial societies.
