Types of Conflicts and the Role of the Environment
  • Günther Baechler
Part of the Social Indicators Research Series book series (SINS, volume 2)


Correlations between transformation of societal-nature relationships and violent conflicts are numerous, as has been pointed out in the previous chapters. In this and the following parts of the analysis the critical role of transformation regarding causation of environmental conflicts in certain arenas of developing countries will be examined. In order to highlight different patterns of causations, to select types of environmental conflicts in terms of different pathways leading to violence, as well as to stress the sociopolitical characteristics of environmental conflicts, one has to build on prepared empirical ground.
