Descriptif
This research is presented in five chapters. In Chapter 2, main concepts are defined and relevant environmental security literature is reviewed. The chapter first discusses academic debates on climate-conflict links. It then provides a few hypotheses with regard to mediating mechanisms, followed by a summary of empirical studies. Next, I introduce first the Sahel and then Chad as a way of setting the scene. In Chapter 3, variables are conceptualized and operationalized and the chosen research design is explained, a combination of quantitative and qualitative analysis. Results are presented in Chapter 4 in two separate sections. First, the results of the quantitative analysis are presented. Subsequently, I summarize several communal conflicts, which are the focus of the qualitative analysis, and describe mediating mechanisms. Finally, in Chapter 5, I discuss main findings and limitations, and suggest possible avenues for future research.
