Abstract

This dissertation explores the relationship between conflict-related migration and development within the (post-) conflict setting of Afghanistan. Taking advantage of two unique micro-level datasets seldom available for such a high-risk environment, these studies tackle a range of issues related to the causes and consequences of conflict-related migration, and also assess an important policy response. Moreover, the varied types of migration are considered including cross-border flows, internal displacement and return migration. The ability to do so is not simply convenient but appropriate given the prevalence of these three particular migration trends in Afghanistan over the last four decades.
