Yet, despite the religious diversity in sub-Saharan Africa and the religious overtones in a number of African conflicts, this assumption has not yet been backed by systematic empirical research on the religion–conflict nexus in the region. The following questions thus remain: Do religious factors significantly impact the onset of (religious) armed conflict? If so, do they follow the logic of the mobilization hypothesis and, if so, in which way? To answer these questions, this article draws on a unique data inventory of all sub-Saharan countries for the period 1990–2008, particularly including data on mobilization-prone religious structures (e.g., demographic changes, parallel ethno-religious identities) as well as religious factors indicating actual politicization of religion (e.g., inter-religious tensions, religious discrimination, incitement by religious leaders). Logit regressions suggest that religion indeed plays a significant role in African armed conflicts. These findings are compatible with the mobilization hypothesis, and stress the impact of conflict-prone religious structures, and particularly, the fact that overlaps of religious and ethnic identities are conflict-prone. Future research should investigate the religion-ethnicity-nexus in more detail.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Wegenast, Tim</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Do religious factors impact armed conflict? : Emiprical evidence from Sub-Saharan Africa</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/18606"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/18606/2/Wegenast_religious.pdf"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>deposit-license</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Basedau, Matthias</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/18606/2/Wegenast_religious.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Vüllers, Johannes</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Vüllers, Johannes</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Wegenast, Tim</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-03-19T10:56:44Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Strüver, Georg</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Strüver, Georg</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-03-19T10:56:44Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Terrorism and political violence ; 23 (2011), 5. - S. 752-779</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://nbn-resolving.org/urn:nbn:de:bsz:352-20140905103605204-4002607-1"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
