The introductory chapter argues that the intervention in Kosovo was essentially, for most actors, a development assistance exercise.

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.
