Forced Migration in Armed Conflicts: Scope and Duration
Abstract [en]
It is well established that forced migration is related to armed conflict. However, we lack systematic research on what accounts for the tremendous variation in the scope and duration of forced migration from one conflict to another. The project aims to fill this research gap through a broadly conceived study of which factors are related to the scope and duration of forced migration in intra-state armed conflict. To this end a new global dataset is created, covering forced migration and various aspects of armed conflict, as well as a large number of other factors from 1964 to the present.

Abstract [en]

It is widely believed that the human impact of civil conflict in the present era is especially destructive. Proponents of the 'new wars' thesis hold that today's conflicts are fuelled by exclusive identities, motivated by greed in the absence of strong states, and unchecked by the disinterested great powers, resulting in increased battle severity, civilian death and displacement. The ratio of civilian to military casualties is claimed to have tilted, so that the overwhelming majority of those killed today are civilians. Using systematic data that are comparable across cases and over time we find that, contrary to the 'new wars' thesis, the human impact of civil conflict is considerably lower in the post-Cold War period. We argue that this pattern reflects the decline of ideological conflict, the restraining influence of globalization on governments, and the increasing rarity of superpower campaigns of destabilization and counter-insurgency through proxy warfare.
