This two-volume set examines United States and United Nations nation-building missions since World War II. Its purpose is to analyze military, political, humanitarian, and economic activities in post-conflict situations, determine key principles for success, and draw implications for future nation-building missions. The first volume, America’s Role in Nation-Building: From Germany to Iraq, draws lessons from America’s experiences in rebuilding Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan and suggests how these lessons might be applied to the reconstruction of Iraq. Volume two, The UN’s Role in Nation-Building: From the Congo to Iraq, contains the lessons learned from eight UN cases: Belgian Congo, Namibia, El Salvador, Cambodia, Mozambique, Eastern Slavonia, Sierra Leone, and East Timor, and also examines the nation-building effort in Iraq.
The two volumes are available as separate reports. Please follow the links below for further ordering information.
