Abstract: This paper offers a framework for analysing the effects of armed conflicts on
households and the ways in which households in turn respond to and cope with the conflicts.
It distinguishes between direct and indirect effects, and shows that the indirect effects are
channelled through (i) markets, (ii) political institutions, and (iii) social networks. Drawing
upon the recent empirical literature, the paper portrays the processes running along these
various channels and offers policy suggestions to be adopted at both national and international
levels.
