Using case studies of countries in three regions of the world, West Africa, South East Asia and Latin America, and also through more global analysis, using political-economy, econometric, historical and anthropological approaches, the relationship between horizontal inequalities (HIs) and conflict, i.e. whether indeed such a relationship pertains in recent conflicts; which type of inequality is most important; and in which conditions conflicts are more likely to emerge, is explored. This paper brings together the main conclusions that emerge from these case studies. It was presented at 'Conflict Prevention and Peaceful Development: Policies to Reduce Inequality and Exclusion', a CRISE policy conference held on July 9-10, 2007 at Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford.
