9781565491809: Nation-Building Unraveled?: Aid, Peace and Justice in Afghanistan

*Uses Afghanistan as a case-study that can be applied internationally
*Contributors have direct political and human rights experience in the field

The prevailing wisdom about post-conflict reconstruction is centered on the notion of nation-building. In the globalized post-September 11th world, can military might and technological solutions foster stability by enforcing democracy from the outside?

Written by key practitioners and analysts involved in the Afghan crisis, Nation-Building Unraveled? explains how emerging international “ordering” practices affect the role and policy of international actors, such as United Nations agencies and international NGOs, their interaction with national authorities and local communities, and their ability to generate just and social outcomes.

From the Publisher:

Using Afghanistan as a case-study that can be applied internationally - most notably to the case of Iraq - this book looks at nation-building with respect to civil society, humanitarianism, government, military, gender and the media. It offers an insider’s perspective to the costs and benefits, challenges and opportunities, trade-offs and compromises involved in response to conflict, injustice and chronic insecurity.
