Global Governance and the New Wars: The Merging of Development and Security (Paperback)Mark R. Duffield
Paperback Published: 01/06/2001
- Not available
War is now an important part of development discourse. Aid agencies have become involved in humanitarian assistance, conflict resolution and the social reconstruction of war-torn societies. This book examines the nature of the new wars - in Africa, the Balkans, Central Asia - the response of the international community, and the new systems of global governance that are emerging. The author reveals a neo-medieval situation in which fragmented sovereignties confront a weakened central authority. He argues that new forms of humanitarian action, far from solving the problem, accommodate and coexist with this instability and inequality.
