We invite papers that can shed light on the effect of food aid on the beneficiaries as well as the warring parties, on demobilization, reintegration and employment programs, on the role of media during conflict, on forced displacement, on new ways to collect data during conflict and on the impact of prevention and peace programs, to name but a few.
Papers on the causes, functioning and consequences of violent conflict are also welcome, provided they have a strong empirical component, including newly collected data, new analyses of existing data, impact evaluations, experiments in the field, archival data.
Please send your papers to the email address of the workshop: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 15 May, 2017.
The Key Note speech will be given by Jeremy Weinstein, Professor of Political Science at Stanford University. The workshop will take place at the Université libre de Bruxelles, Brussels. It is co-organized by the HiCN co-directors Tilman Brück, Patricia Justino and Philip Verwimp. Please see the call or the HiCN website for further information (www.hicn.org).
