Conflict, security and development, an introduction, Danielle Beswick and Paul Jackson - pbk

Summary
This textbook draws on academic theory, field research and policy developments to provide an overview of the connections between security and development, before, during and after conflict. Academics and policymakers increasingly argue that security and development are closely related and therefore cannot be achieved independently of each other. This book uniquely combines academic teaching and approaches with practical policy experience in three keys ways: uses the best of recent academic theory, field research and policy to provide an overview of the connections between security and development; exploring the implications of these connections for the theory and practice of development; investing the challenges that arise for post-conflict reconstruction when we recognise that security and development are mutually contingent
