Coping with Calamity: Natural Disasters, Armed Conflict and Development Aid

Led by Elisabeth Lio Rosvold

Nov 2015 – Nov 2019

This PhD project at NTNU looks at how climatic disasters might affect ongoing conflict, aiming to uncover some of the mechanisms at play between disaster events and the course of ongoing conflicts. The overarching research question asks:

  • Under which conditions do climatic disasters affect the dynamics of ongoing conflict?,
where conflict dynamics refers to type of termination, duration, severity and diffusion of conflict. 

Supervisors at PRIO: Halvard Buhaug and Ragnhild Nordås
