Boyce, James K., O'Donnell, Madalene

SUMMARY

In the aftermath of violent conflict, how do the economic challenges of statebuilding intersect with the political challenges of peacebuilding? How can the international community help lay the fiscal foundations for a sustainable state and a durable peace? Peace and the Public Purse examines these questions, lifting the curtain that often has separated economic policy from peace implementation.Drawing on recent experiences in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Cambodia, East Timor, Guatemala, Palestine, and Uganda, the authors bring to life a key dimension of how both peace and states are built.James K. Boyce is professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where he directs the program on peacebuilding at the Political Economy Research Unit. He is author of Investing in Peace: Aid and Conditionality After Civil War and editor of Economic Policy for Building Peace: The Lessons of El Salvador. Madalene O?Donnell is on the staff of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations. Previously, she coordinated the program on postwar statebuilding at New York University's Center on International Cooperation; and she has also worked on public-sector reform at the World Bank and served as anticorruption adviser at the US Agency for International Development.Contents: Peace and the Public Purse: An Introduction'the Editors.
