Investment in post-conflict situations

Investment is particularly important for economies that are emerging from civil Mar, domestic chaos or other political turmoil. The public infrastructure, farms and factories are likely to have suffered from years of damage or neglect. At the very least, expenditure on national security Mill have crowded out public investment and even basic maintenance. In addition, private investment will have suffered from capital flight because of the natural tendency of local and foreign entrepreneurs to seek safe havens for their capital in times of high risk and uncertainty. The key question for policy makers is how to undertake and encourage the necessary investment in an economic and political environment that is still delicate.
