Final Workshop of the Training and Mobility Network for the Economic Analysis of Conflict (TAMNEAC)

The workshop is co-organized by Université Libre de Bruxelles, ISDC – International Security and Development Center and Humboldt-University of Berlin and it is being held on 8 and 9 September 2014 in Brussels at Université Libre de Bruxelles. TAMNEAC provides training to a young generation of professionals and researchers in tackling the challenges associated with mass violent conflict in developing countries. Using robust empirical evidence, TAMNEAC researchers analyse the drivers, forms and socio-economic consequences of various types of mass violent conflict, including war, as well as the risk management strategies of individuals and households to cope with conflict. The research provides a better understanding of conflict and development issues for policy makers, security and development professionals. TAMNEAC’s evidence-based research offers a significant contribution to policies, program planning, implementation that can have a dramatic impact on the lives of people who have been affected by conflict. The workshop presents an opportunity to learn about TAMNEAC’s extensive research on conflict and to network with researchers and experts in this field. Further information can be found here.
