Civil wars are one of the most pressing problems facing the world. Common approaches such as mediation, intervention, and peacekeeping have produced some results in managing ongoing civil wars, but they fall short in preventing civil wars in the first place. Incentivizing Peace shows that considering civil wars from a developmental perspective presents opportunities to prevent the escalation of nascent, low-level armed conflicts to full-scale civil wars.
