Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change
This volume focusses on non-state actors and political conflicts but also attends to the broader themes of the series. The research emphases the roles and motivations of non-state actors in conflicts or post-conflict situations in the post-Cold War era; as well outlining the dynamics of social movements, conflicts, or change. This volume highlights the motivations and interests of non-state violent actors (NSVAs) in the post-Cold War era; the role of identity and/or ideology in the conflicts or resolutions of so-called "new wars;" the impact of NSVAs in conflict and/or peace-making; and the ways in which IGOs and NGOs interact with NSVAs in conflicts or post-conflict zones.

Political scientists, sociologists, and criminologists analyze the dynamics relevant to understanding the roles and evolution of non-state actors in a range of settings. They begin by looking at the interplay between non-state actors and between them and the state, emphasizing how these actors navigate survival in repressive or conflict-ridden environments. Then they broaden their view to explore the dynamics of social movements and change more generally, looking at nonviolent contexts. Among the topics are killing the movement: how Islam became a rival of an ethnic movement in Turkey 1991-2002, oil ownership and domestic terrorism, and targeting culture: feminist legal activists and critical community tactics.
