Violent conflict adds daunting challenges to social and economic analysis in poor countries: weak data, difficult access, fluid demographics, unsettled social patterns, insecurity, and political sensitivity. This book examines the interplay of violent conflict, poverty, and social dynamics in sub-Saharan Africa. It discusses qualitative and quantitative tools and presents case studies that shed new light on how violent conflicts disrupt lives, derail development, distort societal relations, and sow the seeds of new conflicts. With insights from recent studies of the economic causes of civil war, this volume focuses on how violent conflict leads to new forms of poverty, chronic deprivation, and fragile situations. It is a valuable resource for development practitioners, academic researchers, and government officials in fragile and conflict-affected countries.
