Reconstruction and Reconciliation: Emerging from Transition

Reconstruction and Reconciliation: Emerging from Transition

In this presentation, Graeme Simpson addresses some of the simplistic myths about solutions to social conflict, and then reflects on problems that he has experienced with aid efforts organised by the international community, through the United Nations. He does this by focusing on Bosnia. The second part of his presentation addresses what he sees as the flawed assumptions that often underlie the emphasis on economic reconstruction in the wake of war and conflict.
