Wars beyond the New Wars? – When New Wars theory and the case of CAR and DRC

Projekt

That “New Wars” not are new, is not the interesting question in the debate and understanding of contemporary wars and warfare. The relevant and interesting question often raised in the academic literature on the concept of new wars, is to what extent the new wars theory offers new and better tools in understanding wars and conflicts? This article will critically asses the “New Wars” concept, and tries to apply it on the conflict in CAR and DRC to test its explanatory power. Does the new war theory actually provide new and useful tools in understanding conflicts and wars?
