Violent conflicts exhibit significant spatial variation in the level of human security of those affected by fighting. The papers in this session investigate the factors associated with regional differences in the incidence of violence and the correlates thereof in Africa and the post-Soviet space. Geopolitical, domestic, and/or environmental influences are adduced to address the manner in which conflict originates, spreads, or is contained within and across states.
