Shadow economies and conflict

This project aims to investigate the interaction between violent conflict and the informal, or 'shadow', economy in conflict-affected Mindanao, the second largest and southernmost island in the Philippines.

Shadow economies are an important feature of the regional economy, but have largely been overlooked in the analysis of the conflict in Mindanao. Those involved in the peace process need to consider strategies for minimising the conflict risks posed by these economies while maximising their development potential.
