Previous Course Number: 
PCS460H1, UNI460H1

This course explores the links between violent conflict and socioeconomic development. It focuses on the macro- and micro-level processes leading to conflict and how conflict and political violence affect people’s lives at the household and community levels. It also examines how these micro-level processes are linked to wider political and economic issues, including governance and institutional development. Tools from economic theory are applied alongside country-specific and cross-national empirical evidence.
