This work examines the effect of renewable natural resource scarcity on ethnic conflict. It investigates how scarcities translate into ethnic conflict and which particular cases are bolstered by evidentiary support. Both large N statistical analysis and case study analysis is used. Using ordered logistic regressions, and panel-corrected standard error cross-sectional time-series regression models a relationship is shown to exist between renewable natural resource scarcity and ethnic conflict. Using the same techniques a relationship is proven to exist between renewable natural resources and key mechanisms that affect ethnic conflict. Finally, four cases are examined. The four individual cases look at states where there was low scarcity and low conflict, high scarcity and low conflict, low scarcity and high conflict, and high scarcity and high conflict. The case studies are conducted to see if a process can be traced that reinforces the findings of the statistical analysis conducted. Findings give a mixture of results. The findings suggest that a relationship exists statistically between renewable natural resource scarcity and ethnic conflict. They also suggest that only certain combinations of scarcity and mechanisms effect ethnic conflict. Finally, the cases suggest that in addition to these effects found to exist statistically, that there are other factors that must be considered, such as strategic decision making by both the leadership of ethnic groups and the state.
