War Economies in a Regional Context: Challenges of Transformation
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2004 - 273 ページ
Confronting the corrosive influence that war economies typically have on the prospects for peace in war-torn societies, this study critically analyses current policy responses and offers a thought-provoking foundation for the development of more effective peacebuilding strategies. conflict, with particular emphasis on the regional dynamics that are created by war economies. Their analysis highlights the darker side of the commitment to deregulation, open markets, and the expansion of trade routes that are key features of globalization. In each of three case studies - Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Bosnia - they examine the nature of the war economy, the regional networks developed to support it, its legacies, and the impact of initiatives to transform it. That transformation, they argue, a process central to the transition from violent conflict to sustainable peace, can best be achieved through approaches that recognize critical regional factors.
