Armed Political Organizations Many armed political movements such as Hezbollah Hamas and the Irish Republican Army IRA have their roots in insurrection and rebellion In Armed Political Organizations Benedetta Berti seeks to understand when and why violent actors in a political organization choose to vote rather than bomb their way to legitimacyBerti argues that the classic theory of the democratization process which sees violence and elections at opposite ends of the political spectrum is too simplistic and wholly inadeuate for understanding the negotiation and disarmament work that is necessary for peaceful resolution of armed conflicts and movement toward electoral options In this comparative study she develops an alternative cyclical model that clarifies why armed groups create a political wing and compete in elections and how this organizational choice impacts subseuent decisions to relinuish armed struggleIn her conclusion Berti draws out what the implications are for a government’s ability to engage armed political groups to improve the chances of political integration Berti’s innovative framework and careful choice of case studies presented in a jargon free accessible style will make this book attractive to not only scholars and students of democratization processes but also policymakers interested in conflict resolution and peacekeeping efforts
