About this book

Introduction

The book critically examines the effects of the War on Terror on the relationships between civil society, security and aid. It argues that the War on Terror regime has greatly reshaped the field of development and it highlights the longer-lasting impacts of post-9/11 counter-terrorism responses on aid policy and practice on civil society.

Reviews

"The book makes a valuable and significant contribution to many debates, e.g., on the wars on terrorism and their impact, on the securitisation of aid and development, both generally and in specific environments, on the changing role of civil society and its relationship with the state. Its logical structure, clear and engaging writing, wide-ranging sources and impressive level of detail, mean that the book will appeal to a variety of audiences, from scholars to policy-makers, from students to NGO workers." - LSE Review of Books
