Towards a Framework for a the Study of "No War, No Peace" Societies
This research paper provides a theoretical and methodological framework for studying the social construction and consequences of 'no war, no peace' societies, with Armenia and Azerbaijan as examples. The author furnishes a theoretical framework for understanding the specific characteristics of these societies, in particular the reproduction of institutions that generate conflict potential within and among them. The paper further also examines the existing scientific knowledge of the consequences of long-lasting 'no war, no peace' situations.
