What kind of institutional solutions are there to conflicts in places like Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine? Why do certain institutional arrangements in some places promote peace while in other places the very same institutions seem to be part of the problem? Key to understanding the origins, dynamics, and potential solutions to these kinds of conflicts are political institutions. Institutions can include or exclude certain groups and individuals, redistribute or concentrate wealth, provide or deny access to power, and protect or neglect the rights of minorities. Yet there are rarely cookie cutter institutional solutions available to the “political engineer” who wants to promote peace.
In this seminar, members of the SPP’s Conflict & Change group discuss the conditions under which various political institutions can discourage or encourage conflicts.
