(p.1) Introduction
Donors, Technical Assistance and Public Administration in Kosovo

Mary Venner

Manchester University Press

The introductory chapter argues that the intervention in Kosovo was essentially, for most actors, a development assistance exercise. Understanding the theory and practice of development is therefore necessary for understanding what happened in Kosovo. The chapter describes current ideas about post conflict reconstruction and development and the various critiques of these theories. It also describes the methods development actors use and the complaints frequently made about these methods.

Keywords:   Post conflict reconstruction, Development assistance, Neo-liberalism, Liberal peace, United Nations peacekeeping
