The overall nexus between security and development poses some formidable questions about the multiple forms of violence which afflict the international community: Why are some places peaceful whilst others are violent? Is poverty the main cause of civil conflict? What is the role of foreign aid in the whole process of rehabilitation, reconstruction and recovery following conflict? This important book tackles some of the main security challenges facing the international development community today.

Containing contributions by leading experts, including some who have been at the centre of the international policy debate, it goes further by putting forward suggestions and recommendations as to how best deal with these threats as well as challenges in this crucial area.

The book will be an essential companion for all scholars, policy-makers and practitioners working in this area, and also a useful reference source for students on undergraduate and graduate courses in development studies.
