Annual Workshops

The Households in Conflict Network invite submissions for the
18th Annual Workshop of the Households in Conflict Network
Exposure to Political Violence and Individual Behavior
23-24 November 2022
Radcliffe Conference Center, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

The 18th Annual Workshop of the Households in Conflict Network will be organized at the University of Warwick.

This year’s workshop theme is individual level consequences of exposure to violent conflict with an emphasis on innovative designs, new methods and data to identify causal impacts of armed violence exposure on social, economic, and political behaviors and attitudes of individuals. We invite papers exploring these impacts, the mechanisms that transmit them, as well as the implications of these micro level findings for the macro level socio-economic and political development of societies.

Kristian Skrede Gleditsch (Essex) and Gudrun Østby (PRIO) will be giving the keynote speeches.

As in previous years, we also welcome innovative papers analyzing violent conflict even if they do not directly address the theme. We are thus inviting papers on any topic within the empirical, micro-level analysis of the intersection of violent conflict and socio-economic development.

3 to 4 full scholarships (ticket+hotel) are available for African scholars whose paper is selected to be presented at the workshop.

We are inviting submissions of full papers by July 31, 2022 (23:59 CET) to (hicn2022@gmail.com). Authors will be informed about the final paper selection by September 01, 2022.
