Tackling the legacies of violence and conflict: liberal institutions and contentious politics in Cambodia and East Timor

(2012) Tackling the legacies of violence and conflict: liberal institutions and contentious politics in Cambodia and East Timor. In: Robison, R., (ed.) Routledge Handbook of Southeast Asian Politics. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, Oxon, pp. 263-287.

Abstract

Since the 1990s, the plight of peoples and states emerging from conflict has become a central focus of humanitarian and development policy. The opportunity to settle a series of civil wars, following the end of the Cold War, through United Nations peacekeeping operations, gave rise to a new industry in peace-building and post-conflict reconstruction, incorporating multilateral and bilateral aid agencies, international non-governmental organizations, private contractors, and academic researchers and consultants. Southeast Asia hosted two such operations, each ground-breaking at their respective times: in Cambodia from 1992. to 1993 and in East Timor from 1999 to 2002.
