Climatic Disasters and the Dynamics of Conflict

Led by Elisabeth Lio Rosvold
Nov 2015 -

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
