War and Underdevelopment

This chapter examines Sri Lanka, looking beyond the destructive elements of conflict to examine the transforming effects of conflict. After analysing war-inflicted change at the macrolevel, it focuses on the impact of war at the household level and on human welfare, using a modified entitlements approach. It maintains this framework with the addition of the concept of civic entitlements, the assistance provided to the population by non-governmental institutions. Public and civic entitlements together comprise non-market entitlements. War alters the way in which people procure both market and non-market entitlements. The chapter also identifies notable ways in which Sri Lanka's experience has departed from conventional expectations about countries undergoing war.

Keywords:   Sri Lanka, modified entitlements, civic entitlements, market entitlements
