Violent conflict has inflicted immense damage, caused untold grief, and impoverished millions of people. No region of the world has been immune from its effects. Post-conflict reconstruction is now underway, but with mixed success, and many societies are still far from peace. What are the economic dimensions of conflict and peace-keeping? Does economic development contribute to conflict reduction? And what are the lessons of post-conflict reconstruction?
The conference aims to increase the focus of economists on conflict issues, and to facilitate interaction between economists and other social scientists working on conflict and post-conflict reconstruction.
Conference topics include:
• Violent conflict and its causes
• Conflict prevention and peace-keeping
• Post-conflict reconstruction
• Foreign Aid to conflict and post-conflict countries
• Poverty and human development effects of conflict
