Deadline extended – Call for Papers: 12th Annual HiCN Workshop “Violent Conflict, Resilience and Agriculture: From Emergency to Development”

FAO and the Households in Conflict Network (HiCN) are organising a joint workshop on the impact of violent conflict on the welfare, resilience and behaviour of individuals, households and communities. The workshop will bring together scholars interested in these topics to present their cutting edge original research and to discuss these findings with leading experts from FAO and other interested stakeholders and with each other. The workshop will take place on 24-25 October 2016 in Rome immediately prior to the 7th International Conference on Agricultural Statistics (ICAS VII) in Rome, Italy, which is co-hosted by FAO. The conference will also feature a session on “Measuring the social and economic impact of conflicts and political instability on agriculture”. See https//icas2016.istat.it for further details.

We invite submission of original research papers, with a preference for empirical papers addressing questions of conflict and agriculture at the micro level. Papers making an explicit reference to the connection between agriculture and/or food security and conflict are particularly welcome. We are looking for completed but unpublished papers. Submissions by early stage researchers and from researchers based in the Global South are encouraged. High quality submissions on the economics of conflict outside of the workshop theme will also be considered. Please send your completed paper and a short CV (maximum two pages) in PDF format by email to resilience@fao.org by 28 August 2016. Please see the complete Call for Papers here.

Academic Organizers: Tilman Brück (IGZ/ISDC), Patricia Justino (IDS), Philip Verwimp (Université Libre de Bruxelles) and Marco d’Errico (FAO)
