Conflict has been shown to have large and long lasting impacts on ethnic groups. We examine theorigin of this effect in social capital depreciation when past conflict experience aggravates anti-socialbehaviour. We conducted a money-burning field experiment to examine how the 1976–2005 conflict inAceh, Indonesia affects current interactions between the ethnic groups involved. In addition to ethnicoutgroup effects, we find that females who experienced the conflict burn their co-participants more thanmales.
