Peacebuilding, Hegemony and Integrated Social Development: The UNDP in Travnik

  • Philip Peirce
  • Paul Stubbs
Part of the Global Issues Series book series (GLOISS)


This chapter is based on a case study of a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Integrated Resettlement Project implemented in the Central Bosnian town of Travnik from April 1997 to the present. It is not a detached, outsider analysis, nor could it be as the authors are, respectively, the former project manager and a consultant to the project on participatory evaluation. Instead, the chapter explores the ways in which the project was explicitly designed and implemented as a particular kind of approach to post-conflict regeneration which could be of wider interest.
