Default Wdr 2011

The 2011 version of the World Bank's annual World Development report is devoted to the issue of Conflict, Security, and Development, and may be of interest to some:

Quote:
The World Development Report 2011: Conflict, Security, and Development examines the changing nature of violence in the 21st century, and underlines the negative impact of repeated cycles of violence on a country or region’s development prospects. Preventing violence and building peaceful states that respond to the aspirations of their citizens requires strong leadership and concerted national and international efforts. The Report is based on new research, case studies and extensive consultations with leaders and development practitioners throughout the world.

Default Internally Displaced Persons in 2010

Randy's site also features a related report:http://globalcrim.blogspot.com/2011/...s-in-2010.html

This says it all:

Human displacement is one of the tragic – but often less visible- consequences of pervasive armed conflict.

Default digesting the WDR

Lots of WoRDs in the WDR. What to take away? I find the WB approach is often overly academic and complex. Spend a year researching something and produce a 200 page report that makes your head spin. Other things are kinda duh like:

Quote:
Insight 4: Involving women in security, justice, and economic empowerment programs can deliver results and support longer-term institutional change.
It might. depends....give it a shot.
