MODELING AND SIMULATION OF CONFLICT AND PEACEKEEPING

Mamadou Seck

The 2010 Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC 10)
Ottawa, Canada, July 11-14, 2010


Summary

This paper presents a multi-level simulation approach for analyzing a conflict opposing two groups (ethnic, political or religious groups) with a third actor, an armed policing force playing the peace keeping role. The opposing groups are modeled at the macro-scale by a continuous logistic event-history model (Myers 2008) and at the lower scale by Discrete Event behavioral units representing the different roles at play within each group, interacting through a cell based terrain.
