19th Annual Households in Conflict Network Workshop

Trust and Development in Conflict-Affected Economies

Since 2005, the Households in Conflict Network (HiCN) has fostered academic research and discussion on the micro-level experiences and consequences of conflict in its annual workshop. The 2023 edition will take place at the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management of the Université Libre de Bruxelles, under the theme of Trust and Development. Prof. Julie Chytilova, of the Institute of Economic Studies at Charles University in Prague will present the Keynote Lecture.

As was the case in our previous annual workshops, we are featuring papers that deal with causes, functioning and consequences of violent conflict around the world. We are particularly interested in empirical papers that offer an in-depth analysis of one phenomenon – from migration and forced displacement, via health, education and gender, to elections, impact evaluation and trust, to name but a few topics.
