Interlinkages between Security and Development

Show Summary Details


This chapter analyses the two-way linkages between insurgency and economic development. The various channels through which one influences the other have been examined. It is observed that (in)security and (under)development are positively linked. It also analyses the negative impact of insurgency on human security in the NER. It explains how the cycles of violence interlocking with economic underdevelopment have drawn the societies of the NER into a conflict trap where they are caught in a vicious circle of violence and underdevelopment.

Keywords: security; insurgency; human security; rent seeking; resource drain; drug trade; corruption; fragility; violence; conflict trap
