The ascendancy of stabilization in the international security agenda : outlining a causal link using process tracing
This dataset is presented in figures and tables.
Figure 1. Steps in theory- testing process tracing. This is a basic framework of theory-testing process testing outlining the key steps. (The framework was adapted from Beach and Pedersen 2013:15).
Figure 2: Process and causal mechanism- a depiction of a two-part causal mechanism linking cause and mechanism.
Table 1: Timeline of key events in the Libyan conflict 2011-2020- a chronological of key events in post-Gaddafi Libya between the period 2011 and 2020.
Table 2: Main actors in the Libyan conflict- an outline and description of key actors central to the Libyan crisis, including domestic actors, foreign actors and armed groups.
Table 3: Conceptualization and operationalization of the causal mechanism. The table outlines the predicted empirical observables of each part of the theorized causal mechanism. This constitutes the second step of process tracing, that is, translating theoretical expectations into case-specific predictions of what observable manifestations each of the parts of the mechanism should have if the mechanism is present in the case.
Table 4: Comparison of approaches to stabilization -an overview of approaches to stabilization by a cross-section of governments and international organizations. The selection of actors was informed by variety of institutional models in terms of inter-agency structures, funding mechanisms, cross-sector priorities and degree of integration between civilian and military capabilities.
