The global poor are increasingly concentrated in a limited number of countries. The World Bank expects that by 2030, up to two thirds of the world’s extremely poor live in Fragile Conflict-affected settings, and mostly in rural areas. This thesis aims to investigate the local dynamics that underlie (or are caused by) the lack of development. The core argument in this thesis is that the effect of each of these risks and opportunities on development outcomes is not direct.
