Based upon an agreement with USAID and the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, and as an outcome of the 2013 Conflict and Development Strategy Workshop, 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:
How to design interventions that build upon local coping strategies to incentivize food security and promote resilience?
How can natural resource management be used as a peace-building approach?
How to engage youth populations through workforce development linked to jobs?
How do legitimate local institutions redirect elite competition and promote cooperation dynamics?
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.
