The study is funded by a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Department for Business, Innovation &Skills (BIS) and the Welsh Government. The discussion paper studies the impact of conflict on household propensity to engage in entrepreneurial activities.

The conflict-related expansion of self-employment forced the Afghan economy into a regressive, backward-looking structural change in which the number of agricultural activities and companieswith low capital requirements increased again. This effect increases with the intensity of the conflicts and their frequency.
