"The GDP of a stateand political instability of a state have a much stronger effect on whether an area will see armed conflict than whether there was degradation or relative or absolute scarcity of a natural resource," says Clionadh Raleigh in this short video preview of her co-authored article "Climate Change, Demography, Environmental Degradation, and Armed Conflict, "
now appearing in the 13th issue of the Environmental Change and Security Program Report.

Research conducted by Raleigh and co-author Henrik Urdal found that population density and growth are related to increased civil conflict, but that demographic and environmental factors are generally outweighed by political and economic ones.

Raleigh, a lecturer at Trinity College Dublin, and six other demographic experts analyze the links connecting population and environmental dynamics to conflict in a set of commentaries on "New Directions in Demographic Security."
