Drawing on Kalyvas’s “information problem” and Boulding’s “loss of strength gradient”, this paper proposes a simple model of how the violence becomes more indiscriminate as a function of distance from the actors’ power centers. The proposed mechanism is a growing inability of the actors to distinguish between collaborators of the adversary and innocent bystanders. Tested on the conflict event level for 11 cases of insurgency, the results indicate that a simple distance-decay mechanism can explain the occurrence of indiscriminate violence to a large extent.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-12-23T09:10:40Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-12-23T09:10:40Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Schutte, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schutte, Sebastian</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
