War or Peace

About this event

Violence has adverse implications for the broader economy, both in the short and long term, and imposes substantial economic costs on society. What is the basis for understanding the economic benefits resulting from improvements in peace? In this episode, we explore the security services and prevention-oriented costs, armed conflict-related costs and consequential costs of interpersonal violence. What are the implications of continued increases in military expenditure and political conflicts across Africa? What is the framework for championing peaceful co-existence on the community level within Africa towards better economic development? Is peace just the absence of conflict and what are the attitudes, structures and institutions that underpin and sustain peaceful societies?
