The 9th annual workshop of the Households in Conflict Network will take place on the 21-22 of November 2013 at the University of California Berkeley. We invite empirical papers who increase our understanding of the phenomenon of genocide and mass murder. Political economy and theoretical contributions will also be considered. Papers which illuminate the behaviour of people in the institutional context in which they operate are particularly welcome. As in previous workshops, papers who inform us on the micro-economics of violent conflict but do not particularly address the theme of this year are also welcome. Papers should be sent to email@example.com before September 1, 2013.
