Implications and Challenges for Policy Makers

Part of the Rethinking Political Violence series book series (RPV)


This chapter discusses the implications and challenges that have emerged from the case studies, as well as the findings and conclusions of the research as a whole. It examines the similarities and differences between the case studies and militant groups, and compares them in order to examine the political opportunities and constraints, the mobilising structures and the cultural framing of both case studies. The two case studies, with their different outcomes, made it possible to examine when conflicts escalate and when conflicts can be resolved. It also allowed from an examination of when there are high and low levels of ACV.
