After the Conflict: Reconstructions and Redevelopment in the Aftermath of War
I.B.Tauris, Oct 7, 2005 - History - 313 pages
What have been the experiences and lessons learned from reconstruction activities which have followed wars over the past ten years? With recent events both in Afghanistan and Iraq and frequent talk of on-going conflicts, this question has preoccupied politicians, aid donors and the media as never before. After the Conflict draws together the main issues and arguments on the subject into a single volume emanating from the University of York's Post-war Reconstruction and Development Unit (PRDU), renowned as the world's leading research center dedicated to the study of the aftermath of war. Examining case studies from war and post-war reconstruction scenarios around the world the book sets out a philosophy of reconstruction that has emerged from extensive original research at PRDU, showing that solutions to successful post-war reconstruction must be found locally, within the communities affected by conflict rather than being imposed from outside, however well-meaning the interventions. Other key insights include the need to understand the root causes of different conflicts and the importance of fully integrated approaches, which harness the skills of a broad range of professional disciplines. After the Conflict will prove an invaluable resource for students of post-war recovery, conflict studies, development economics as well as to academics, practitioners, aid managers and policy makers.
