Oliver Vanden Eynde is Visiting Associate Research Scholar, Empirical Studies of Conflict Project (ESOC) at Princeton University. His research focuses on civil conflict, crime, and the role of the military in developing countries. He has worked on the human capital effects of military recruitment in colonial India, the design of civil-military institutions, and the targeting strategies of insurgents in India’s Maoist conflict.
