Modeling civil violence

An agent-based computational approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article presents an agent-based computational model of civil violence. Two variants of the civil violence model are presented. In the first a central authority seeks to suppress decentralized rebellion. In the second a central authority seeks to suppress communal violence between two warring ethnic groups.
