Containing Internal Warfare in the Twenty-First Century: The Doctrine and Policies of Engagement

by Ted Robert Gurr

In David Malone and Fen Osler Hampson (eds.), From Reaction to Prevention: Opportunities for the UN System in the New Millennium.The conventional view is that armed conflicts within states at their attendant humanitarian emergencies surged upward at the end of the Cold War and continued to increase during the 1990s. That view is not supported by the evidence. On the contrary, quantitative and qualitative changes have occurred in the severity and settlement of deadly societal conflicts during the last decade, including a decline in new wars beginning in the mid-1990s and continuing through the end of that decade into the next. This chapter briefly reviews those changes and assesses their implications for international responses to future threats to regional and global security. Lynne Rienner, 2002.
