Conflict disproportionately takes place in countries with large numbers of young people living in rural areas. Yet, this group is seldom the specific focus of analysis in the conflict or rural development literatures. The project outlines what can be learned from prior literature and how it can be applied to rural youth.
This project provides new evidence and recommendations from North-east Nigeria for food security interventions in conflict-affected settings. The findings are based on a review of relevant linkages food security and conflict and an empirical impact analysis of an agricultural input intervention by FAO.
What causes a country to be “fragile” differs significantly across locations. Individuals in different places will often experience fragility very differently. In this project, we develop a survey module to measure individual experiences of fragility, applying this concept for the case of Kenya.
This project analyzes the relationship between food security and violent conflict. We review the literature on the linkages between food security and conflict, develop a novel analytic framework, and create new empirical cross-country and within-country case studies.
A study on the role of employment programs for peace in conflict-affected and fragile countries, based on an evaluation of such interventions by the ILO, PBSO, UNDP and the World Bank.
