Investing in Peace: How Development Aid Can Prevent or Promote Conflict by Robert J. Muscat

A development economist with a history at the US Agency for International Development urges aid agencies to use their resources to prevent ethnic and cultural conflict before it erupts into violence. He describes the relationship between conflict and international development agencies, cites case studies where aid has helped and not helped, looks at connections and precursors, and sets out an agenda for preventing conflict.
