4. Peace & Security/Paix et sécurité

 



Peace and war has had a relationship with development throughout human history. Regions of the world afflicted by conflict and violence present extreme poverty indicators even in times of global economic optimism. Through the political economy of violence and insecurity, this section examines governance structures and mechanisms to deal with conflict and post-conflict development at local and international levels. Two key conclusions arise: conflict hinders development; and, the path to post-conflict development can only be achieved through a process of local reconciliation with the assistance of external actors.



Tout au long de l’histoire de l’humanité, la paix et la guerre ont entretenu une relation intime avec le développement. Les régions affligées par le conflit et la violence affichent des indicateurs de pauvreté extrême, même en période d’optimisme économique à l’échelle mondiale. Cette section fait appel à l’économie politique de la violence et de l’insécurité pour examiner les structures et les mécanismes de gouvernance qui permettent de faire face aux conflits et d’assurer un développement après les conflits, à l’échelle locale et internationale.
