Rebuilding War-Torn States

Iraq and Afghanistan are hardly alone in having to face failure in their transition to peace. Since the end of the Cold War, countries at low levels of development — ranging from Haiti to Timor-Leste, to Liberia, Sierra Leone, Burundi, and others in Africa, and several in the Balkans — have emerged from civil conflict to establish a fragile peace. Others, such as Colombia, the Palestinian territories, and Sudan, it is hoped, will begin such a transition soon. The purpose of the book is to integrate theoretical and practical issues related to post-conflict economic reconstruction in a methodical, comprehensive, consistent, and rigorous way to facilitate effective reconstruction and national reconciliation and to ensure that conflict will not recur. The book is based on personal experience but in addition provides a comprehensive review of the literature.

Keywords:   political economy, peacetime, effective reconstruction, review of the literature, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Colombia, Palestinian territories, Sudan
