Violence in the postconflict state

18 Apr 2006
CMI has been awarded a 2-year grant under the Research Council of Norway's new program on Poverty and Peace. The project, entitled Violence in the Post-Conflict State", starts by noting that civil wars are often followed by continued or new forms of violence in the affected states. Such violence - whether associated with ex-combatants, organized crime, disaffected warlords, recriminating agents of the state or post-war marginalized groups - seems widespread but poorly understood.
