Rebellion may be explained by atypically severe grievances, such as high inequality, a lack of political rights, or ethnic and religious divisions in society. Alternatively, it might be explained by atypical opportunities for building a rebel organization. While it is difficult to find proxies for grievances and opportunities, we find that political and social variables that are most obviously related to grievances have little explanatory power. By contrast, economic variables, which could proxy some grievances but are perhaps more obviously related to the viability of rebellion, provide considerably more explanatory power.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Collier, Paul</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-07-10T09:33:11Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Hoeffler, Anke</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Greed and grievance in civil war</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Hoeffler, Anke</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-07-10T09:33:11Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:issued>2004-06-22</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
