Political Violence and Development

Successful international development depends crucially on political stability within developing countries. As policymakers and academics will point out, countries that have avoided political violence are generally experiencing economic growth and improvement in social welfare. Countries involved in protracted conflicts, on the other hand, are declining both economically and socially. This roundtable explores the complex relationship between violence and development with specific attention to the development trajectories of African countries that have avoided or experienced violence.
