Political Economy of Statebuilding: Power after Peace by Mats Berdal

This volume examines and evaluates the impact of international statebuilding interventions on the political economy of conflict-affected countries over the past 20 years. It focuses on countries that are emerging, or have recently emerged, from periods of war and protracted conflict. The interventions covered fall into three broad categories:

  • international administrations and transformative occupations (East Timor, Iraq, and Kosovo);
  • complex peace operations (Afghanistan, Burundi, Haiti, and Sudan);
  • governance and statebuilding programmes conducted in the context of economic assistance (Georgia and Macedonia).

This book will be of interest to students of statebuilding, humanitarian intervention, post-conflict reconstruction, political economy, international organisations and IR/Security Studies in general.
