Post-Conflict Reconstruction: From Extremism to Peaceful Co-Existence is a comprehensive presentation on the root causes of state fragility, which provides an enabling environment for violent religious extremism. It addresses various security, political, socio-economic and external factors that contribute to state fragility, which is further enhanced in a conflict environment. The book deals closely with the use of violence due to ideological, religious and political reasons. By analyzing the situations in the post-conflict states of Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Nigeria and Libya, the book establishes the co-relationship between state fragility and religious extremism in post-conflict settings.

The book emphasizes the need to address the grievances of marginalized sections in all countries with fragile state structures that usually take to violence to make their voices heard. It also highlights the imperative for swift rehabilitation of poor people—who typically bear the brunt of conflicts and are often displaced forcefully—for restoring peace and security, and averting future disturbance.

Index

“Post-Conflict Reconstruction is a timely book. It steps away from the ‘mainstream’ understanding of extremism, re-engages with the issue by examining it through the prism of State fragility and makes a case for peaceful co-existence.”

The Telegraph, 11 December 2020

“The all-embracing argument of this book is to understand how and why states get trapped into fragility… will be extremely useful to the students of conflict studies.” 

The Book Review, March 2021
