War and Social Welfare: Reconstruction after Conflict addresses the issues of rebuilding social assistance and pension programs in the wake of war. Arguing that post-conflict reconstruction missions need to pay greater attention to comprehensive social policy formation, the book makes normative and functional claims that social welfare programs articulate the core aspects of citizenship. War and Social Welfare uses the case of Kosovo to examine the interaction of international and local political actors in their efforts to rebuild social assistance and pension programs after the 1999 NATO airstrikes. Based extensive field research, as well as the author's experience as a humanitarian field officer in Kosovo in 1999 and 2000, War and Social Welfare looks closely at the design and implementation of social policy at both the national and local level.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is a tour de force.It is clear, to the point, streamlined, well-paced, and balanced. The book traces the development of emergency international aid programs for Kosovo and the ways these were transformed into a more traditional social policy. It places this largely descriptive study in the context of existent welfare state theory by correctly identifying the Kosovo welfare state as liberal in character. Though it will certainly appeal to those interested in Kosovo, it will also appeal to those interested in international social policy more broadly and those interested in post-conflict social policy.It is original and unique in that no other more detailed analysis is known or indeed possible." - Mitchell Orenstein, S. Richard Hirsch Associate Professor of European Studies, Johns Hopkins University, Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies
