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.

"...Does ‘aid’ itself create incentives that undermine sustainability? This is the provoking question underlying the present study, which explores how the incentives that arise in the system of development co-operation affect sustainable outcomes..." Ostrom, E, et al (2004:1)
