MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This study explores the econometric investigation, how social economic conditions, political stability, law and order situation, demographic accountability, the role of military in politics and some other factors affect the external and internal conflicts of the 28 low income countries for the period of 1984 to 2011. International relations among these countries have been analyzed in this study. Feasible Generalized least Square method has been used to explore this panel data analysis. FGLS with cross sectional heteroskedasticity model has been used for all these variables. All the variables are significant. The findings indicate that foreign factors associated with the conflicts are different from the internal factors associated with conflicts. The data has been collected from international country risk guide for the period of 1984 to 2011. The general theory of conflict has also played its role to explain and analyze the findings and results.
