  • AFTER THE CONFLICT

    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 preoccupies 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 centre dedicated to the study of the aftermath of war. Examining case studies from war and post-war reconstruction scenarios around the world, this book sets out a philosophy of reconstruction that has emerged from extensive original research at PRDU. This has concluded that solutions to successful post-war reconstruction needs are to be found locally, within the communities affected by conflict and that therein lies the best hope of achieving lasting, sustainable outcomes.<

  • RECONSTRUCTING WAR-TORN SOCIETIES

    As international attention focuses on the rebuilding of Afghanistan, this collection looks critically at the evolution and meaning of the core concepts underpinning aims and strategies for recovery: the key role of institutional development and capacity building in establishing good governance, based on collaboration between state, civil society and market; the empirical consensus, over many decades, for best practice in development; the acknowledgement that recovery of war-torn societies is a development challenge. It is also shown that, despite this understanding, operational practice continues to contradict these principles and lessons learned from proven experience.
