This research examines environmental risk vulnerability and cooperation from the perspective of reconstruction in post-conflict areas. Using examples from the Balkans and sub-Saharan Africa, concepts from disaster risk are expanded and refined to fit violent conflicts, including how redevelopment aid needs to take account of the particular environmental vulnerabilities that exist after conflicts. The role of scientific evidence in policymaking is also addressed, and how traditional categories of security can and need to be redefined in order for proper reconstruction patterns to take shape.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Post-Conflict and Post-Crisis Group series.
