about the book
Investing in Peace analyzes the provision of aid to countries that have undergone negotiated settlements to civil wars, drawing in particular on experiences in Bosnia, Cambodia, El Salvador, and Guatemala. The book explores how aid can encourage domestic investment in peace-related needs; the reconciliation of long-run peacebuilding objectives with short-run humanitarian imperatives; and the obstacles that donors' priorities and procedures pose to effective aid for peace. It concludes that investing in peace requires not only the reconstruction of war-torn societies but also the reconstruction of aid itself.
