Measuring Conflict Exposure in Micro-Level Surveys


Violent conflict is a key obstacle to overall economic development and specifically to human development. Socioeconomic research on conflict has demonstrated that the circumstances of conflict matter greatly for policies designed to end and overcome the legacies of conflict. Reconstruction policies in particular must build on local conflict legacies, taking into consideration how people were affected by war and violence. This sourcebook aims to increase the capacity of researchers and policymakers to identify consistently, comparatively, and across time, the ways in which violent conflict affects individuals, households and communities along key social and economic dimensions.
