Author Biography - Derick W. Brinkerhoff
This volume explores questions of rebuilding governance in post-conflict societies from new interdisciplinary perspectives, examining how current approaches to governance reconstruction might be modified. The role of state failure in the outbreak of conflict and war has put a spotlight on the importance of sound governance in mitigating conflict, establishing peace, and moving toward a society that provides citizens with security, effective services, and legitimate institutions. The complexity of governance reform and reconstruction in failed states has challenged the foreign policy and international development communities. Governance in Post-Conflict Societies argues that rebuilding governance depends upon filling three interconnected gaps that arise in failed and failing states: deficits in legitimacy, effectiveness, and security. This book will be of much interest to students of international public administration, global governance, foreign policy and international relations issues in general, as well as to practitioners in the field.
