Comment on Reversing Course in Libya: Starting From Where the Real Power Lies by skaplan28 http://www.fragilestates.org/2015/12/05/modeling-fragility-a-societal-and-institutional-approach/#comment-104284 Mon, 01 Aug 2016 22:16:47 +0000 http://www.fragilestates.org/?p=3919#comment-104284 Thank you for your input. The above are suggestions for flagging states not identifying them. There is also ample literature on how ethnic diversity can reduce public goods and increase the chance of conflict (Easterly and so on). I also suggest reading case study material (e.g., Joel Barkan and Frances Stewart). The key is not whether every state with societal fractures is going to fall into violent conflict but that such states need to manage their cleavages better.

As for your last question, have you reached out to the NGOs directly working on the issue? If you need suggestions, please email me.

Comment on Reversing Course in Libya: Starting From Where the Real Power Lies by Nancy Hayden http://www.fragilestates.org/2015/12/05/modeling-fragility-a-societal-and-institutional-approach/#comment-104268 Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:44:22 +0000 http://www.fragilestates.org/?p=3919#comment-104268 The proposed axes for assessing political order (institutional capacity and social cohesion) reflect a requirement to balance coercive and cooperative instruments of governance. This is consistent with my dissertation research findings that assesses the outcome of dynamic conflict systems over 25 years. However, I am surprised at the reference to ethnolinguistic diversity as a causal indicator of conflict, as there is contradictory research showing the opposite (e.g., Reynal-Querol), with polarization being the more dominant factor amplifying conflict. Similarly to inequality using Gini coefficient clusters – the causal relationships and correlations are not robust in the literature as a basket of indicators. However, I have found that at least for conflicts in Africa, improvements in gender empowerment (as one indicator of equality using World Bank Gini coefficient data) are robustly associated with conflict transformation over the past 25 years. This seems to be corroborated with case study research of peace mapping even in Somalia at the local level.

I am keenly interested in following this thread. Do you know of research associating gender empowerment and social cohesion in fragile states?
