Globalization and armed conflict( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization and Armed Conflict addresses one of the most important and controversial issues of our time: Does global economic integration foster or suppress violent disputes within and among states? Here, cutting-edge research by leading figures in international relations shows that expanding commercial ties between states pacifies some, but not necessarily all, political relationships. The authors demonstrate that the pacific effect of economic integration hinges on democratic structures, the size of the global system, the nature of the trade goods, and a reduced influence of the military on political decisions. In sum, this book demonstrates how important the still fragile "capitalist peace" is

The wages of peace : disarmament in a small industrialized economy by Nils Petter Gleditsch( Book )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the end of the Cold War, many nations have set about cutting their military spending, and visions of a large 'peace dividend' have emerged. Yet, even today, the arms race remains one of the major projects of humankind, and one of the most unproductive. This book charts a middle course between extravagant claims about the improvements in welfare, development and the environment to be funded by the peace dividend, and the dire assessments of how militarized economies will collapse as a result of disarmament, spiced with warnings that the peace dividend may already have been squandered. Based on a decade of studies, many carried out for the United Nations and its specialized agencies, this book breaks new ground in applying comprehensive models to examine the economic and environmental effects of disarmament at the global, national and local levels, with a primary focus on Norway. The authors also review the international literature on disarmament and conversion. Their findings are cautiously optimistic and of general relevance to all developed countries. The most important dividend of disarmament is peace itself, but some economic gains may also be achieved
Democratic jihad? : military intervention and democracy by Nils Petter Gleditsch( )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democracies rarely if ever fight one another, but they participate in wars as frequently as autocracies. They tend to win the wars in which they participate. Democracies frequently build large alliances in wartime, but not only with other democracies. From time to time democracies intervene militarily in ongoing conflicts. The democratic peace may contribute to a normative justification for such interventions, for the purpose of promoting democracy and eventually for the promotion of peace. This is reinforced by an emerging norm of humanitarian intervention. Democracies may have a motivation to intervene in non-democracies, even in the absence of ongoing conflict, for the purpose of regime change. The recent Iraq War may be interpreted in this perspective. A strong version of this type of foreign policy may be interpreted as a democratic crusade. The paper examines the normative and theoretical foundations of democratic interventionism. An empirical investigation of interventions in the period 1960-96 indicates that democracies intervene quite frequently, but rarely against other democracies. In the short term, democratic intervention appears to be successfully promoting democratization, but the target states tend to end up among the unstable semi-democracies. The most widely publicized recent interventions are targeted on poor or resource-dependent countries in non-democratic neighborhoods. Previous research has found these characteristics to reduce the prospects for stable democracy. Thus, forced democratization is unpredictable with regard to achieving long-term democracy and potentially harmful with regard to securing peace. But short-term military successes may stimulate more interventions until the negative consequences become more visible

Conflict and the Environment by Nils Petter Gleditsch( )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of the Cold War has opened up the arena for increased attention to other lines of conflict, both in Europe and globally. Environmental disruption - by no means a new phenomenon - is a chief beneficiary of the shift in priorities in the public debate. The Scientific and Environmental Affairs Division of NATO has moved with the times and has defined environmental security as one of the priority areas for its cooperation with Central and Eastern Europe and countries of the former Soviet Union. Research on these issues is now thus very much a collaborative effort across former lines of division in Europe. The Introduction by Sverre Stub sets the tone: Our Future - Common, or None at All. The book reveals the very real risks associated with environmental degradation, whether of the land, waters or the oceans, and charts out previous disputes and points to the very real danger of violent conflict associated with the drying up of natural resources. The book ends with a section on Responses, which seeks to provide answers to the threats discussed in the preceding sections
Assessing the capitalist peace by Gerald Schneider( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Researchers have recently reinvigorated the idea that key features associated with a capitalist organization of the economy render nation states internally and externally more peaceful. According to this adage, the contract intensity of capitalist societies and the openness of the economy are among the main attributes that drive these empirical relationships. Studies on the Capitalist Peace supplement the broadly received examinations on the role that economic integration in the form of trade and foreign direct investment play in the pacification of states. Some proponents of the peace-thro
