Young men who have been formerly involved in conflict, drugs and crime are a potential threat to peace and development in Western African countries such as Liberia. An NGO which aimed to help men reintegrate into society offered two programs. The first program was eight weeks of group cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for 12 hours per week, aimed at treating harmful beliefs and behaviors by making people aware of and able to challenge their negative automatic patterns of thinking. The second program was a cash transfer of $200, approximately three months wages, which respondents could do what they wanted with. We ask you to forecast the long-run impacts of both programs.
