Abstract/Description: What are the causes and consequences of internal displacement during civil conflicts? This project makes two general claims: First, internal displacement is often the intentional byproduct of territorial consolidation during civil wars. Second, internal displacement can create an unfortunate and heretofore undiscovered feedback loop: wide-scale displacement leads to increases in civil war duration as well as intensity, which thereby leads to increased displacement. This project examines these claims through the use of unique micro-level data on the Colombian Civil War as well as cross-national investigations of internal displacement and civil war duration.
