The Costs of War Project at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University is dedicated to the study of the economic, political, and human toll war can take. The project is directed by Neta C. Crawford, Professor of Political Science at Boston University; Catherine Lutz, Thomas J. Watson, Jr. Family Professor of Anthropology and International Studies at Brown University; and Stephanie Savell, Ph.D. from Brown University. Consisting of 35 legal experts, professors, and researchers, the project provides a wide range of perspectives that illuminate the true cost of conflict to the host countries, their economy, and their citizens.
The project is aimed at providing the public with the information needed to debate the costs and benefits of U.S. military involvement in a post-9/11 world.
