Behavior Researcher Piero Ronzani and Welfare Senior Researcher Aysegül Kayaoglu traveled to Bologna, Italy this June to present at the 22nd Jan Tinbergen European Peace Science Conference. The annual conference gives researchers the opportunity to speak on any issue broadly related to peace and security and is hosted by the Network of European Peace Scientists (NEPS).
Aysegül presented a paper related to our CEDIL-funded impact evaluation of the SEEDS project. In it, we evaluated a FAO-run set of agricultural interventions in crisis-affected Syria. Find out more on our project site!
Piero brought two different papers to the conference. One is about our work on mental health in Palestine, where we examine the prevalence of poor mental health, economic stability, and conflict exposure – a joint project with the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS), the World Bank, and Zentrum Überleben. The other paper takes evidence from 29 African countries to look at the interplay between conflict, gender, and employment.
We appreciate our collaborations with NEPS and are always thrilled to be able to attend the Jan Tinbergen European Peace Science Conference!
