Renewable resources are supposedly connected to conflict via scarcity, while non-renewable resources are hypothesized to lead to conflict via resource abundance. Based upon our analysis of these two streams in the literature, it turns out that the empirical support for the resource scarcity argument is rather weak. However, the authors obtain some evidence that resource abundance is likely to be associated with conflict. The article concludes that further research should generate improved data on low-intensity forms of conflict as well as resource scarcity and abundance at subnational and international levels, and use more homogenous empirical designs to analyze these data. Such analyses should pay particular attention to interactive effects and endogeneity issues in the resource–conflict relationship.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-10-27T09:27:30Z</dc:date> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/55403/1/Koubi_2-s4lyx8fboh218.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Koubi, Vally</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:contributor>Koubi, Vally</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Böhmelt, Tobias</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:creator>Bernauer, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Böhmelt, Tobias</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Spilker, Gabriele</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-10-27T09:27:30Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/55403/1/Koubi_2-s4lyx8fboh218.pdf"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/55403"/> <dc:contributor>Bernauer, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Spilker, Gabriele</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Do natural resources matter for interstate and intrastate armed conflict?</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
