On 23 – 24 November, Ph.D. Candidate Maxine Leis attended the HiCN (Households in Conflict Network) annual workshop hosted by Warwick University. The seminar’s theme was individual-level consequences of exposure to violent conflict. It emphasized innovative designs, new methods, and data to identify the causal impacts of exposure to armed violence on individuals’ social, economic, and political behaviors and attitudes.

Maxine presented a working paper with Kristina Petrova, Determining distress mobility at the household level – an interpretative machine learning framework.
