This new Handbook offers a combination of theoretical, thematic and empirical analyses of the statebuilding regime, written by leading international scholars.

Over the past decade, international statebuilding has become one of the most important and least understood areas of international policy-making. Today, there are around one billion people living in some 50-60 conflict-affected, 'fragile' states, vulnerable to political violence and civil war. The international community grapples with the core challenges and dilemmas of using outside force, aid, and persuasion to build states in the wake of conflict and to prevent such countries from lapsing into devastating violence.

The Routledge Handbook of International Statebuilding is a comprehensive resource for this emerging area in International Relations. The volume is designed to guide the reader through the background and development of international statebuilding as a policy area, as well as exploring in depth significant issues such as security, development, democracy and human rights. Divided into three main parts, this Handbook provides a single-source overview of the key topics in international statebuilding:

Part One: Concepts and Approaches

Part Two: Security, Development and Democracy

Part Three: Policy Implementation

This Handbook will be essential reading for students of statebuilding, humanitarian intervention, peacebuilding, development, war and conflict studies and IR/Security Studies in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Chandler and Sisk's is not a how-to handbook; rather, it offers a particularly well-informed canvas of contemporary research and practice in the field of statebuilding. The editors' ambition is to make the handbook an `essential reference material for the interdisciplinary field of specialization on statebuilding themes' (xxiii). This is precisely what they accomplish with this publication. The handbook will become a single-source reference for all those interested in contemporary statebuilding and world affairs: for the inexperienced, it offers an outstanding departure point to understand key themes from the perspective of experienced scholars and practitioners in the field; for the experienced, it is a handy source systematizing a broad, complex and vibrant field of multidisciplinary research and practice in contemporary world politics." -FERNANDO CAVALCANTE, University of Coimbra, Portugal
