Peace and its many aspects

A thousand words?

People who study peace and conflict resolution–like many other social scientists–often make models and draw diagrams.   Here are a few I have come across recently.  What do you think?  Clear, or not?

Admittedly, I’ve taken these out of the contexts where they are explained.  However, I was personally interested in the diagrams in themselves.  I find it interesting how, with the graphic tools we have available to us, we can (with more or less success) portray complex social processes in two dimensions.  So, see what you can glean from the diagrams and let me know if you would like to know from where they came (Hint:  two of them deal with the work of R.J. Rummel 🙂 ).
