Abstract

This paper looks at the relationships between development, conflict and forced migration with the purpose of investigating how humanitarian, refugee and development assistance policies can help developing countries resolve or prevent violent conflicts.The first part of the paper looks at the causes and consequences of violent conflict and forced migration. It discusses the role of economic factors in causing conflict and forced migration. Conversely, it also investigates the negative impact on development, poverty and economic growth caused by violent conflict and forced migration. Part Two of the paper looks at how this vicious cycle can be broken, with particular emphasis on how developmental and humanitarian aid can be honed to strengthen the prospects for peace and security.
