Development Strategies and Inter-Group Violence: Insights on Conflict-Sensitive Development

development-strategies-intergroup-violenceEdited by William Ascher and Natalia Mirovitskaya


Drawing on economic, political, and psychological theory, policy experiences, and case studies of the three regional volumes in the series (Economic Development Strategies and the Evolution of Violence in Latin America; Development Strategies, Identities, and Conflict in Asia; and The Economic Roots of Conflict and Cooperation in Africa), this book assesses the risks and opportunities of development strategies regarding the likelihood of inter-group violence. Policymakers and development practitioners will greatly benefit from this detailed and comprehensive analysis of how development initiatives may affect group identities, influence multiple disparities among groups, create "conflict-opportunity structures," and change the dynamics of state-society relations.

Available from Palgrave MacMillan, a division of St. Martin’s Press.
