International State Building and Reconstruction Efforts : Experience Gained and Lessons Learned Paperback / softback


Post-conflict related efforts by the international community, towards state (re)building and the reconstruction of a society and its economy, have become more or less a regular feature of international affairs since the early 1990s.

It seems that the demand for such international efforts is rising rather than diminishing.

All have in common that the establishment of sound state structures and livable economies in a given state are considered by a sizeable and powerful group of states as something that is furthering international peace and stability.

This book addresses the strategic and policy dimensions of these international state building and reconstruction efforts.

The chapters take up issues relating to the economic, security-related, and institutional aspects.

Table of Contents include: Lessons Unlearned: Why Most International Reconstruction Efforts in the Past Have Failed .

Measuring Progress in International State Building and Reconstruction .

Creating Market Economies in Post-Conflict Societies .

Paradoxes and Dilemmas of Democratization and State Building in War-Torn Countries .

Establishing Security in Conflict-Ridden Societies .

Fighting Insurgencies and Terrorists in Post-Conflict Situations .
