FRANCHI, Tássio; MIGON, Eduardo Xavier Ferreira Glaser; VILLARREAL, Roberto Xavier Jimenéz. TAXONOMY OF INTERSTATE CONFLICTS: IS SOUTH AMERICA A PEACEFUL REGION? Brazilian Political Science Review, v. 11, nº 2, 2017, p. 1-23.

 


 

 

This article revisits theoretical efforts to classify interstate conflicts. It analyses South America and discuss the adequacy of influential interpretations about the intensity of interstate conflicts in the region as compared to global or other regions ones. The literature takes for granted that South America is a peaceful region. Such interpretation results from the indicators adopted. We argue that traditional indicators do not fully capture latent tensions and the actual level of conflicts in the region. The article suggests an alternative taxonomy that better fits the South America context and argues that a research agenda on the extent and nature of interstate conflics is needed.
