The World Bank's Living Standards Measurement Study team and the International Security and Development Center wil co-organise a training course on measuring violent conflict in micro-level data surveys from 23 till 27 November 2015 In Berlin, Germany. The training course will promote the collection of data on conflict through the implementation of household surveys in conflict-affected areas, in order to improve the quality of survey data on the effects of violent conflict exposure, enhance the overall understanding of socioeconomic change, and inform policy making. It will equip practitioners, mostly national experts working in conflict-affected countries collecting micro-level survey data, with an appreciation for the importance of collecting data on conflict at the micro-level and with practical knowledge and hands-on training in data collection methods.

The World Bank will cover travel expenses for all selected participants. The deadline to submit an expression of interest is August 27, 2015.
