Peace and Conflict 2005:
A Global Survey of Armed Conflicts, Self-Determination Movements, and Democracy
June 2005

Peace and Conflict 2005 is the third edition in the Integrated Network for Societal Conflict Research (INSCR) Program's biennial global report series. This full-color, 100-page global report details major trends in armed conflict, self-determination movements, and democracy through the contemporary era, 1946-2004, and provides a "conflict ledger" assessing each country's "peace-building capacity" in early 2005. The 2005 edition of the report complements the earlier editions by updating the trends and issues raised in the earlier reports, updating its descriptions of the status of major armed conflicts and self-determination movements, and expanding its analysis to include four new issues: trends in ethnic discrimination, 1950-2003; political instability in Africa (including an Africa Instability Ledger); genocides and politicides since 1955; and the social roots of, and general trends, in global terrorism.
