Public Finance and Post-Conflict Statebuilding

The ability of the state to collect resources and convert them into public goods and services is central to the long-term viability of peace processes and the short-term implementation of peace agreements. Yet this topic has received little study in the literature on what are (optimistically) termed ‘post-conflict’ transitions. In collaboration with the Center on International Cooperation (CIC) at New York University, PERI is engaged in a research program on postwar public finance.

In the first phase of this research, we have commissioned six country case studies (Afghanistan, Cambodia, East Timor, Guatemala, Palestine, and Uganda) and two thematic papers (monetary policy and debt management).
