Trends and Impacts in Conflict Settings: Conflict and MDGS, Issue No. 2
الاتجاهات السائدة في أثناء النزاعات وتداعياتها: النزاعات والأهداف الإنمائية للألفية، العدد 2

This study contributes to the conflict–development literature in the following ways: (a) it revisits the recent literature on the conflict-development nexus within the prism of the ESCWA region which has seen surprisingly little research work, paying particular attention to its five conflict-affected member countries and territories; (b) it calculates the cost of conflict on development in the region above and beyond the orthodox mechanisms by including the direct and indirect costs, separating out the impact of conflict on income and other developmental factors; (c) it separates out civil wars from inter-State wars and shows that differences in developmental outcomes can be caused by different types of conflicts; and (d) it introduces appropriate theoretical budgetary responses to shortfalls in MDG attainments in conflict-affected countries.
