Short presentation

My dissertation project explores the link between climate change, natural disasters and the likelihood of various kinds of violent conflict. It further investigates the relationship by looking into potential intervening mechanisms such as migration and temporary displacement, and conditioning factors such as quality of state and local political institutions. The project employs both quantitative and qualitative methods.

Keywords: climate change quantitative methods communal conflict armed conflict extreme weather events political institutions
