Abstract: This paper provides an empirical analysis of the principal determinants of post-conflict economic transitions during the period 1960–2010 using a dynamic panel estimation approach. In addition to demographic, economic, geographic, and institutional variables, we introduce a novel measure of conflict recurrence risk, estimated with a logistic regression approach controlling for unobserved fixed effects in a non-linear probability model. The empirical results show that the risk of conflict recurrence is a significant determinant of post-conflict economic performance, even after controlling for a broad set of demographic, economic, geographic, and institutional factors.
