The Five Percent Problem: Applying Dynamical System Theory to Intractable Conflicts

Intractable conflicts are conflicts that have proven persistent, particularly destructive and resistant to change. It is estimated that around 5 % of the world’s major conflicts are of this type. Recently, scholars at Columbia University have begun to use the models of dynamical system and complexity theory to analyze and understand intractable conflicts. Check out these excellent and very friendly vids – courtesy of Peter Coleman and his team – introducing the application of DST to ICs.
