Assistance in chronic conflict areas: evidence from South Sudan
Reports and Assessments
This paper explores whether humanitarian aid has been effectively delivered to those most in need during the peaks of conflict in South Sudan, i.e. in 2017. In particular, the main contributions to the literature are: a) the use of a solid quantitative dataset collected in chronic conflict areas; b) the evidence that most exposed (to conflict) households are those who received less assistance; c) the confirmation that social norms affect the distribution of assistance into conflict areas; and d) the evidence that accessibility is not an obstacle to assistance delivery.
