Washington, D.C., World Bank, Social Development Department, Post-Conflict Unit, 1999 Sep. 30 p.This booklet presents the outcome of a dialogue among technical experts, donors, and senior World Bank staff to explore the relationship between security and development in a world increasingly affected by violent conflicts. The dialogue was designed as a series of learning events to raise awareness and understanding of a matter that is drawing growing concern: the impact of small arms, civil war, violence, and conflict on poverty reduction and sustainable development. However, this dialogue was not meant to be a prescriptive or an advocacy exercise but, rather, an attempt to better define the problems, share experiences and ideas, and lay the foundation for future work with development partners in this area. It was recommended that these issues and the agenda on security reform be mainstreamed in the work of the World Bank, since they are central to the fulfillment of the Bank's mission of sustainable growth and poverty reduction in conflict-prone or post-conflict areas.
