"Armed Conflict and Compliance in Muslim States, 1947-2014: Does Conflict Look Different under International Humanitarian Law?" Corri Zoli is the Director of Research and a Research Assistant Professor at INSCT- the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at SU.  
Description: Though many empirical studies have explored state conflict behavior by a range of factors—regime, economic development, political grievances, natural resources, non-state belligerency, religious and ethnic diversity—relatively few studies have examined the conflict behavior of Muslim-majority states, which comprise a range of conflict types, governance models, and integration patterns in the state system. Even less research in the now expansive area of quantitative conflict studies has, furthermore, systematically examined the role of state compliance with international humanitarian law as a variable in such conflict behavior. The lack of attention to these respective problems is noteworthy by the contrast with otherwise intensive interest in related subjects: political violence among Muslim societies, democracy deficits in the Arab world, political Islam and instability, resource and development dynamics in the broader Middle East and North African region, ethnic identity and religion in civil strife. To address these oversights, this work builds a new data-set based on an international humanitarian law definition of war, and provides an overview of modern armed conflict behavior and compliance with international law governing armed conflict for Muslim states from 1947-2014.
