June 2014Beyond Zeroes and Ones: The Intensity and Dynamics of Civil Conflict
with Stephen Chaudoin, Christopher Stanton: w20258
There is tremendous variation in conflict intensity both across and within civil conflict spells. Using an instrumental variables approach and a rich set of dynamic, empirical models, we find that the intensity of conflict is negatively related to per-capita income. Economic conditions also affect conflict dynamics, as higher per-capita income reduces the persistence of past conflict intensity.
