Abstract: Conflict's effect on migration depends on an individual's location relative to the conflict. Conflict can thus influence migration and resulting patterns of settlement through push and pull forces. This study investigates the influence of conflict and other factors on location choices during the Nepalese civil war using a model the captures the push and pull forces of these factors. Model results indicate that conflict at origin and potential destination locations combine to influence location choice, and further suggest that landscape features can moderate the influence of conflict on migration. The findings highlight the importance of push and pull factors, and associated landscape interactions, and in determining location choices during conflict.
