Population Needs and Perception

When a conflict ends and peace accords are signed, national and international actors invariably have ideas about what is needed to move forward. This project focuses on understanding the perceptions of the population that has suffered under conflict. A joint project with the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, which has been conducting surveys in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, this project studies the perception of the population over time, using repeated cross sectional survey data.
