Most of these theories have been focused on the strategic environment in which these acts take place. Less attention is devoted to the perpetrators of these human right abuses themselves: the armed groups. This study tries to fill this niche by using the organizational process theory in which it is assumed that armed groups, like every organization, struggles for survival. The leader tries to ensure the maintenance of her armed group by increasing her control over her troops. The relationship between the level of control and the perpetrated civilian abuse is examined with a new dataset on the internal structure of more than 70 different armed groups around the world. With the help of a Bayesian Ordered Probit model, this new dataset on civilian abuse is analyzed. The results show that especially particular incentives play an important role.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-02-05T12:48:46Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The Organization of Political Violence by Insurgencies</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Haer, Roos</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
