This is interesting paper and I enjoyed reading it. It is well-motivated and well-positioned paper.

(a) If possible, I would encourage you do a placebo exercise considering those individuals born after the conflict and hence are not affected by the conflict, for whom you should not get any significant effects.
(b) You may want to be a bit more explicit when you discuss about identification and endogeneity issues. You sometimes mention ''selection bias'' without explaining where it can come from.
(c) I would be a bit more explicit in terms of interpreting the size of the effects.
(d) You may want to be explain why we we are observing significant effects for those who were at school and not for the other groups (e.g., those who were in utero).
