"How International Relations Affect Civil Conflict" Clayton Thyne Discusses Theories Surrounding Civil War

Given the appalling consequences of civil wars, why are the competing actors within a state unable to come to a settlement to avoid the costs of conflict? How might external parties affect the likelihood that a civil war begins? How do their actions affect the duration and outcome of civil conflicts that are already underway?
