Strengthening local institutions is important to redirecting competition and promoting cooperation dynamics in conflict prone regions.
The Center on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University seeks to improve the effectiveness of development programs and policies for conflict-affected and fragile countries through multidisciplinary research and education.
The Center uses science and technology to reduce armed conflict, sustain families and communities during conflict, and assist states to rapidly recover from conflict.
ConDev’s research focuses largely on mitigating conflict related to four program areas, which were hand-picked based on their potential to combat key drivers of international conflict:
