Title: Why do they fight? The determinants of participation in civil wars

I'm interested to the determinants of political participation, especially in context of political violence. My focus is mostly on selective and non-selective incentives, but I'm also interested in other factors that may affect collective action problems, such as costs of participation and social norms.
