Homer-Dixon has performed research on environmental conflicts and examined the renewable resource scarcity problem put forward by environmental changes. According to them, the scarcity of these sources shall trigger drastic conflicts in the coming years. Moreover, the ones mostly influences by this chaotic medium caused by the environmental scarcity will be the developing countries. Homer-Dixon emphasizes that what needs to be done against this situation is social and technical creativity. In this study, this resource- based conflict model of Homer-Dixon shall be analyzed.
