Project Description: The Joint Analysis of Conflict and Security (JACS) looked to understand the dynamics of conflict and stability in fragile countries, by using an integrated cross-HMG approach. It aimed to build a shared, cross-governmental understanding of the context and basic drivers of the conflict and instability in conflict-ridden countries. The purpose of the study, undertaken by Experience International and VTT Global, was to identify the relationship of poverty, inequality and economic opportunity with the prevalence of conflict in selected areas of Pakistan (KPK, FATA & Punjab). The study defined a Conflict Index by capturing and weighting all publically-recorded incidents (from newspapers, published reports, etc.) in six violence categories (Anti-State, State Response, Communical Ethnic Tribal, Organized Crime, Political Violence, Sectarian Religious), for the period 1 October 2012 through 31 March 2014.
