Conflict Research, Facts, Figures And Academic Papers

Conflict is one of the most researched topics, and the research, and statistics can be found in papers and reports in Psychology, Sociology, International Affairs, and a number of other disciplines.

Unfortunately it's become much more difficult to access these papers because publishers often make them available only on a paid basis.

In this section, you'll find links to research or research findings about conflict that you can access free of charge.

In some cases where the research is particularly useful, we'll point you to a link with the ABSTRACT, which is free, even if there is a fee or registration required to read the entire document.
