About the course:
This course focuses on the relationship between armed conflict and socio-economic development, and the role of e.g. state capacity in this link. The course has a strong focus on empirical documentation but also looks at the theoretical arguments explaining the empirical patterns. The course will consider the effect of development on conflict as well as the effect of conflict on development in terms of economic growth, public health, refugee flows, and gender differences in health outcomes.
