In this paper we lay out the plans for our research over the next five years. The Crisis States team is in the process of revising these plans and interested in receiving feedback and comments. A more detailed plan of the work will be published after this process is complete. The paper outlines a programme of work, which involves rigorous comparative analysis of processes of war, state collapse (or its avoidance) and reconstruction. The programme is divided into three major components, hinged on comparative national level study, study at the level of the city and study of regional and global processes. An appendix at the end of the paper already highlights some evolution in the team’s thinking about our case selection
