Special Issue: Persistent Conflict

Rangelov, Iavor and Mary Kaldor, guest eds. (2012) Special Issue: Persistent Conflict, Conflict, Security & Development 12(3).

The problem of conflict persistence has attracted growing attention in recent years but the ensuing proliferation of vocabularies, analytical lenses, and policy agendas leaves significant gaps in our knowledge and often encourages more confusion than clarity.  This Special Issue of Conflict, Security & Development explores three aspects of conflict persistence: trends, drivers, and solutions.  In the Introduction to the volume, guest editors Iavor Rangelov and Mary Kaldor examine the meanings and implications of persistent conflict and outline a research agenda, which shifts the focus of debates over conflict to the question of persistence.  The piece quickly became the most read article on the website of the journal and can be downloaded free of charge here
