Violent conflict and economic growth: Some time-series evidence

Author

  • Starr, Martha A.

Abstract

This paper uses time-series methods to examine interrelationships between growth and violent conflict in Sub-Saharan Africa. Results show bidirectional causalities, but the key determinant of conflict risk is prior conflict experience, not fluctuations in economic growth.
