The Job Challenge in Post-Conflict and Fragile States
May 02, 2012 | Contribution by PAUL COLLIER

Paul Collier is a Professor of Economics at Oxford University and Director of the Center for the Study of African Economies. He was interviewed by the JKP on March 19, 2012.
 
For post-conflict and fragile states, there is an acute need for generating and sustaining gainful and productive employment to help economies rebuild. Paul Collier, Professor of Economics, Oxford University, and Director, Centre for the Study of African Economies, specializes in governance in low-income countries including the economics of civil war. We asked his thoughts on job creation in post-conflict and fragile states, which sectors hold the most promise, and where the bottlenecks lie. He stressed the need for jobs for young men to make the countries safer, the job potential of the construction sector, and the importance of removing bottlenecks by building skills and establishing land rights.
