This multi-disciplinary programme funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond brings together scholars from economics, epidemiology, political science, and conflict research to study the impacts of armed conflict on human development
in much greater detail and comprehensiveness than earlier studies. It takes a risk-analysis perspective, assessing the expected impact as a function of hazard, exposure, and vulnerability, and considers effects at
both the macro and micro level on economies, health, water security, political institutions and human rights, and forced migration.
Hazard will be modeled through an expansion of ViEWS to also alert observers to particularly detrimental occurrences of violence.
