This paper examines the persistent effect of the 1998 –2000 Ethiopia-Eritrea conflict on human capital accumulation. The empirical findings indicate that exposure to the conflict during early childhood decreases student achievement in mathematics and language scores (mainly for girls) a decade later. It increases the probability of grade repetition (for boys and girls) and dropout of school (for boys only).
