Identify a territorial conflict, including its location and the state that controls the territory. Use news articles or other sources (provide citations) to answer the following questions. Be prepared to discuss the case with your classmates.
1. Briefly describe the source of the conflict, including the major actors. What forms the basis to the competing claims to the territory?
2. What techniques does the state use to maintain control over the territory (e.g., surveillance, force, ideology.)?
3. How do non-state actors subvert state control over the territory?
4. Do you think one actor has a more legitimate claim to the territory? Why?
