MetadataShow full item record
The very fact that the World Bank titled the World Bank Development Report (WDR) for 2011 “Conflict, Security and Development “ indicates the importance that development agencies attach to addressing the detrimental effect conflict has on curtailing development and the crucial importance of security in promoting reconstruction. In the preamble, Robert Zoellick, the president of the World Bank stresses the imperative to “bring[ing] security and development together to put down roots deep enough to break the cycles of fragility and conflict.” The introduction to the report correctly points out that the nature of conflict has changed from an overwhelming number of conventional and civil wars to a vicious cycle of low level repeated violence that is difficult to classify. The violence has characteristics of criminal and political activities quite often reinforcing each other. It is a state of “neither peace nor war” but long, brutal and devastating conflict that tears the very fabric of society.
