Violence has adverse implications for the broader economy, both in the short and long term, and imposes substantial economic costs on society. What is the basis for understanding the economic benefits resulting from improvements in peace? In this episode, we explore the security services and prevention-oriented costs, armed conflict-related costs, and consequential costs of interpersonal violence.
Mustapha will respond to major questions such as,
- What are the implications of continued increases in military expenditure and political conflicts across Africa?
