Abstract: "In this paper I wish to focus on the synthesizing capabilities of the frameworks employed and the models already developed. This will be addressed in a section providing a brief review of the components of the project as presented in the earlier papers. I will then elaborate on the commonalities between internal and external conflict that can be drawn from the use of a more general social conflict perspective. The theme of commonalities will be expanded through the use of the opportunity and willingness framework, which will be outlined and applied to models of revolution or collective violence and models of war, especially hegemonic or system change war. Focusing on willingness, these commonalities will also be addressed using a general expected utility approach."
