Conflict Assessment and Analysis

"Conflict analysis is the systematic study of conflict in general and of individual or group conflicts in particular. Conflict analysis provides a structured inquiry into the causes and potential trajectory of a conflict so that processes of resolution can be better understood. For specific conflicts, the terms conflict assessment or conflict mapping are sometimes used to describe the process of identifying the stakeholders, their interests and positions,and the possibility for conflict management" (USIP, 2011:15). In practice, the challenge is how to engage in conflict analysis as an intervention geared at stimulating and supporting multiple stakeholder dialogue around conflicts.

"This paper demonstrates how the integration of disaster risk management with insecurity programming can expand the scope of risk management to the mutual benefit of communities and aid agencies" (Mitchell Andrew and Smith, M.E, 2011: Executive Summary)
