Conflict and Economic Development
Armed conflicts are prevalent in developing countries. International disputes, civil wars, terrorism, ethnic clashes and other forms of conflict can have devastating social and economic consequences for the affected population. This seminar aims to give master students an overview of relevant aspects of the relationship between armed conflicts and economic development. The focus will be on recent empirical and theoretical studies about the economic determinants of conflicts, the effects of the conflicts on economic outcomes and other related topics.
This class is designed as a compact course or block seminar: Students have to write a term-paper and present its main content in a final presentation.
Requirements: This is a Master-level course. It is assumed that students have prior knowledge of econometrics and economic theory at the level of the Fundamentals Courses of the MIEEP program.
