Globalization and armed conflict( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 322 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 mil

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 169 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
Conflict and the environment by Nils Petter Gleditsch( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nils Petter Gleditsch International Peace Research Institute, Oslo (PRIO) et Department of Sociology and Political Science, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trond heim This book could hardly have happened but for the end of the Cold War. The decline of the East-West conflict has opened up the arena for increased attention to other lines of conflict, in Europe and at the global level. Environmental disruption, not a new phenomenon by any means, is a chief beneficiary of the shift in priorities in the public debate. The Scientific and Environmental Affairs Divi sion of NATO has moved with the times and has defined environmental security as one of its priority areas for cooperation with Central and Eastern Europe and countries of the former Soviet Union. This book is the main output of an Advanced Research Workshop (ARW), held in Bolkesjl/l, Norway, 12-16 June 1996. I would like to acknowledge the personal support of L. Veiga da Cunha, Director of the Priority Area on Environmental Security. Research on these issues is now very much a collaborative effort across former lines of division in Europe. NATO encourages, indeed requires, that this be reflected in the composition of the participants, as well as the organizing committee. This meeting was organized by a group of five people from five different countries: Lothar Brock (Germany), Nils Petter Gleditsch (Norway), Thomas Homer-Dixon (Canada), Renat Perelet (Co-Director, Russia), and Evan Vlachos (USA)

Democratic jihad? : military intervention and democracy by Nils Petter Gleditsch( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 76 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
Nils Petter Gleditsch : pioneer in the analysis of war and peace by Nils Petter Gleditsch( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents Nils Petter Gleditsch, a staff member of the Peace Research Institute of Oslo (PRIO) since 1964, a former editor of the Journal for Peace Research (1983-2010), a former president of the International Studies Association (2008-2009) and the recipient of several academic awards as a pioneer in the scientific analysis of war and peace. This unique anthology covers major themes in his distinguished career as a peace researcher. An autobiographical, critical retrospective puts his work on conflict and peace into a broader context, while a comprehensive bibliography documents his publications over a period of nearly 50 years. Part II documents his wide-ranging contributions on globalization, democratization and liberal peace, on international espionage, environmental security, climate change and conflict and on the decline of war and more generally of violence as a tool in conflict

Assessing the capitalist peace by Gerald Schneider( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 55 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
