The long-term effects of civil war in developing economies (2020_2_40_014)


This research project aims to examine the long-term impact of civil war on society and the economy in developing countries. Specifically, this project focuses on the civil war in Cambodia during the period of 1970-1998 and that in Nepal during the period of 1996–2006. We empirically investigate the long-term consequences of the civil war on economic activities for households and firms. By comparing the microeconomic consequences of civil wars with varying intensities of economic damage, we provide formal evidence to improve policymaking in economic recovery policies. Thus, this project seeks to contribute to academic literature on civil war with evidence-based policymaking for recovery from such.
