The Program on Conflict and Development seeks to improve the effectiveness of development programs and policies for conflict-affected and fragile countries through multidisciplinary research and education.
The Program's work aims to reduce armed conflict, sustain families and communities during conflict, and assist states to rapidly recover from conflict.
