Activities

The multidisciplinary Development and Conflict research program brings together economists, political scientists, military, and development practitioners for conferences and workshops to dicuss and refine the implications of their field research.

It has also provided training and support for graduate students and young researchers in the rapidly growing research fields of political and economic development in conflict and post-conflict environments.
