Introduction:

The Secure Livelihoods Research Consortium is a six year global research programme exploring livelihoods, basic services and social protection in conflict-affected situations.Funded by the UK Department for International Development, Irish Aid and the European Commission, SLRC was established in 2011 with the aim of strengthening the evidence base and informing policy and practice around livelihoods and services in conflict.

Objectives: 

At the center of SLRC’s research are three core themes:
  • State legitimacy: experiences, perceptions and expectations of the state and local governance in conflict-affected situations
  • State capacity: building effective states that deliver services and social protection in conflict-affected situations
  • Livelihood trajectories and economic activity under conflict
