Tony Addison - UNU-WIDER, 2003 - Helsinki, Finland

This policy brief summarizes the results of a UNU/WIDER project on war and reconstruction in Africa directed by Tony Addison, which is now published as From Conflict to Recovery in Africa.

Tony Addison - Oxford University Press, 2003 - Oxford, UK

Establishing peace and reconstructing Africa's war-damaged economies are urgent challenges. For Africa to recover, communities must reconstruct, private sectors must revitalize, and states must transform themselves. Thus, unless communities rebuild and strengthen their livelihoods, neither...

Working Paper pdf
Janine Aron - UNU-WIDER, 2002 - Helsinki, Finland

Institutions are altered by conflict, depending on the scale, duration and type of war. At one extreme, formal political, social and economic institutions may be completely destroyed (e.g. Somalia), while the importance and type of informal institutions may be changed. This survey addresses some of...

Working Paper pdf
Tony Addison, Abdur Chowdhury, S. Mansoob Murshed - UNU-WIDER, 2002 - Helsinki, Finland

Financial development is vulnerable to social conflict. Conflict reduces the demand for domestic currency as a medium of exchange and a store of value. Conflict also leads to poor quality governance, including weak regulation of the financial system, thereby undermining the sustainability of...

Working Paper pdf
– Lessons from Eritrea
Göte Hansson - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

With the Derg's overthrow in 1991, Eritrea embarked on the construction of a new state. New economic institutions were created, and considerable reform undertaken. Problems in co-ordinating reform and reconstruction were largely avoided, mainly because of the institutional...

Working Paper pdf
Carlos Nuno Castel-Branco, Christopher Cramer, Degol Hailu - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

Privatization, together with liberalization and deregulation, constituted the core of Mozambique's economic transition. Privatization in Mozambique has taken place on an unusually large scale in comparison with the rest of Africa. Privatization interacted with military demobilization and...

Working Paper pdf
David L. Bevan - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

In 1991, the new Government of Ethiopia faced a triple fiscal challenge. First, a major effort was required to overhaul and modernize the tax system. Second, the need to switch expenditure from military to civilian uses had to take place within a potentially severely reduced resource...

Working Paper pdf
Tony Addison, Alemayehu Geda - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

Ethiopia is one of a number of SSA economies that adopted state-led development strategies in the 1970s (others include Angola and Mozambique), and suffered from intense conflict (leading to the fall of the Derg regime in 1991). The new government was therefore faced with the twin...

Working Paper pdf
Renato Aguilar - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

Angola’s difficulties in achieving macro-economic stability and economic liberalization have serious implications for private-sector development. Hyperinflation, and frequent policy reversal, constrain and distort investment in both the informal and formal parts of the private...

Working Paper pdf
Gaim Kibreab - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

Since large-scale programmes of post-war resettlement and reintegration are costly, it is important to learn the lessons of the resettlement programme started after the end of Eritrea's liberation war in 1991. Eritrea's system of land tenure largely facilitated resettlement (although long-...

Working Paper pdf
Mário Adauta de Sousa, Tony Addison, Björn Ekman, Åsa Stenman - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

The list of illnesses afflicting Angolan society is a long one: political instability, civil war, macroeconomic mismanagement, and the desperation born of poverty. A profound sense of uncertainty afflicts all levels of society-the government (and its opponents), entrepreneurs and rural and urban...

Working Paper pdf
– Communities, Entrepreneurs, and States
Tony Addison - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

Africa has become synonymous with conflict. There were armed conflicts in 16 of Africa's 54 countries in 1999. For Africa to recover, communities must reconstruct, private sectors must revitalize, and states must transform themselves. Aid donors, NGOs, and international business can do much to...

Working Paper pdf
Tony Addison - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

Governments frequently compartmentalize issues of reform and reconstruction into separate strategies and separate ministries (the fate of poverty reduction as well). Donors do likewise, for each has its own responsibilities; the IMF focuses on reform, the UN concentrates on conflict resolution and...

Working Paper pdf
Marc Wuyts - UNU-WIDER, 2001 - Helsinki, Finland

The economic policies of transition and reconstruction in Mozambique, like the policies of central planning beforehand, were based on an inappropriate model of the inherited rural economy. Under central planning, the peasantry was looked upon as a mass of subsistence producers; with the economic...
