Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper surveys three sets of hypotheses put forward in the conflict literature regarding the relationship between the size and location of population groups. They are based on population mass and concentrations, distances, and some residual state-level characteristics. The analysis covers 14 countries of Central Africa.
