  1. 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.

  2. Certain types of conflict subjects may co-occur with ICM or non-ICM subjects.Lundy, Brandon D. - The Effectiveness of Indigenous Conflict Management Strategies in Localized ..., 2022 - 3 Variables

  3. OCM subjects associated with indigenous conflict management (ICM) approaches are distinct from OCM subjects associated with non-ICM approaches.Lundy, Brandon D. - The Effectiveness of Indigenous Conflict Management Strategies in Localized ..., 2022 - 2 Variables

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Men's divorce freedom and defiant homicide predicted suicides attributable to interpersonal frustration while only men's divorce freedom predicted suicides with apparent extrapersonal precipitants (227-228, 222).Krauss, Herbert H. - Social contexts of suicide, 1971 - 8 Variables

    This study investigates the thwarting disorientation theory of suicide, suggesting that the rate of suicide in a society can be predicted from thwarting disorientation traits such as men’s divorce freedom and defiant homicide.

  7. There is a positive association between political repression and anti-government violence.Bartusevičius, Henrikas - Political repression motivates anti-government violence, 2023 - 2 Variables

    As the title suggests, the authors of this article investigate whether political repression motivates or deters anti-government violence. Through multinational analyses of 101 nationally representative samples from Africa, Asia, and Latin America, they find that highly politically repressed individuals are more likely to participate or have intentions to participate in anti-government violence.

  8. 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.

  9. Cultural complexity will be positively associated with legal development (4).Shiels, Dean - Cultural evolution and conflict resolution, 1986 - 2 Variables

    This study examines why conflict emerges and how societies resolve it. The authors posit that increasing societal scale and differentiation create more potential for conflict but also more complex forms of conflict resolution. Analysis supports this theory, showing that measures of cultural complexity are positively associated with legal mechanisms for conflict resolution.

  10. Successful coup attempts and coup attempts will be more frequent in pre-colonial state groups (PCS) than stateless groups (SL).Paine, Jack - Ethnic violence in Africa: destructive legacies of pre-colonial states, 2019 - 3 Variables

    This study investigated the difference in rates of violence of precolonial states and stateless ethnic groups in postcolonial Africa. The author hypothesized ethnic groups of precolonial states (PCS) would experience more violence, (i.e. coup attempts and civil wars) than non-PCS groups. The author suggested that because of PCS countries’ inability to allow rival ethnic groups into power positions in addition to the extra power PCS groups gained under colonial rule may lead to more violence.
