On 14 October, Craig Loschmann will defend his PhD dissertation ‘Essays on Conflict-related Migration and Development in the case of Afghanistan’. Popular and academic interest in the relationship between migration and development has grown considerably over the last two decades. However, there is a gap in the empirical literature when it comes to migration between developing countries, otherwise considered South-South migration, and other less voluntary forms of migration like refugee movements from countries afflicted by conflict. This dissertation is a collection of empirical essays which attempts to fill this gap by exploring the link between conflict-related migration and development in the (post-) conflict environment of Afghanistan.
