Conflict Trap Conflict Trap Presentation Transcript

  • Conflict Trap
    Olivia Devoti, Ava Di Leo, Francesca Druback, Kim Geissler, Vanessa Gutzeit, DanicaPagulayan, Kelly Zdanowicz
  • Causes of Conflict
    Proven Causes:
    Low income
    Slow growth
    Dependence on primary commodity exports
    Others:
    Donations from despotic communities
    Geography
    Those who have recently had conflict (Within 10 years)
    Disproven Causes:
    Political repression
    Particular racial/ethnic groups are repressed
    Intergroup hatreds
    Income inequality
    Colonial history
    Ethnic diversity
  • Other Problems Caused by Increased Conflict
    • Longer conflict causes:
    • Lower income
    • Exports to become more valuable
    • Wartime economy traps country in a spending cycle
    • Military spending has to remain increased after conflict has ended
  • Child Soilders
    Reasons for Joining Conflict:
    Hopes of attaining wealth
    Lives or families lives are threatened
    Kidnapped
    Young/Uneducated
    Ex: Lord’sResistenceArmy
    Effects:
    Original rebellion cause is harder to follow because of young and uneducated group
    Children loose education and therefore hinder the countries future of rising out of conflict trap
  • Effects of Conflict
    Reduced growth of 2.3 percent per year
    Average of $64 billion
    Deterioration in political rights
    Population shifts causing:
    Epidemics
    Refugees
    Deaths
    Generates territory outside the control of recognized government
    Increased crime
    Illegal activity
    Osama bin Laden
  • The Conflict Trap
    Bottom billion at 1/6 risk of falling into trap
    Two Scenarios:
    Conflict right after independence or previous conflict
    Long peace and then conflict
    Both cause:
    All growth made in peace time to be lost
    Increases risk of further war
    Legacy of organized killing
    Armies are not longer trusted
    ex: Republic of Congo
    Trap:
    Growth decrease from war and cost of war move countries right back into conflict because this keeps them with the 3 causes
    After conflict countries have 50% chance of re-entering into conflict and need approximately half a decade to make up growth lost, making it almost impossible to ever make up lost growth because they continue to fall into conflict
  • Countries in the Conflict Trap
    • Uganda
    • Rwanda 
    • Angola
    • Sierra Leone
    • Zimbabwe
    • Sudan 
    • Algeria
    • Cambodia 
    • Liberia
    • Somalia
    • Republic of Congo 
  • Coups
    Caused by:
    Low income
    Low growth
    Once a country has a coup they are more likely to have more coups
    Cause the country to be more afraid of their own military
    coup d'etat- the violent overthrow or alteration of an existing government by a small group
  • Prevention
    Allow foreign countries to come and take command of the country that is in jeopardy
    Because
    Foreign intervention ends a conflict by:
    • helping one side defeat the other
    • acting as a mediator
    • creating a peaceful settlement between the warring parties
