Trust and Development in Conflict-Affected Economies

Since 2005, the Households in Conflict Network (HiCN) has fostered academic research and discussion on the micro-level experiences and consequences of conflict in its annual workshop. The 2023 edition will take place on 23 and 24 November at the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management of the Université Libre de Bruxelles, under the theme of Trust and Development. Prof. Julie Chytilova, of the Institute of Economic Studies at Charles University in Prague will present the Keynote Lecture.

As was the case in our previous annual workshops, we invite papers that deal with causes, functioning and consequences of violent conflict around the world. We are particularly interested in empirical papers that offer an in-depth analysis of one phenomenon – from migration and forced displacement, via health, education and gender, to elections, impact evaluation and trust, to name but a few topics.

Full papers need to be sent to hicnannualworkshop23@gmail.com for consideration by 1 September 2023 at the latest. We will inform selected papers by 15 September 2023. Participants will need to finance their own travel to Brussels and accommodation. In addition, the workshop organiser charges a fee of 150 Euro to pay for the venue, coffee, lunches and dinner.
