There is a recognized social aspect involved in conflict of multiple (>2) parties; however it is traditionally neglected as either insignificant or analytically intransigent. On the other hand, there exists a substantial literature on these social aspects - belief and trust formation and social influence - in social network theory, but it decouples these beliefs and influences from decisions and actions. The CORES model attempts to resolve the deficiency in traditional conflict models by applying social network methods to multi-agent conflict situations.
