This volume provides a comparative study of exit with regard to international operations of a state-building nature. The chapters focus on the empirical experiences of, and scholarly and policy questions associated with, exit in relation to four families of experience: colonial administrations, peace support operations, international territorial administrations, and transformative military occupations. In all of these cases, state-building, broadly conceived, has been a key objective, undertaken most often in conditions of fragility or in the aftermath of armed conflict. The chapters offer detailed accounts of practice associated with exit—examining the factors that bore on the decisions by external actors to scale down or terminate an operation; investigating the nature of any planning for withdrawal; exploring whether exits were devised with clear objectives in mind; and assessing the effects of the exit strategies employed, especially in relation to peace and stability. The volume also addresses issues of a more thematic nature, notably recent institutional innovations that are intended to help manage transitions; the political economy of exit; competing normative visions of exit; and the policy implications of the analysis contained here. The case studies and the thematic essays combined reflect the key experiences and issues that are most relevant to a study of exit strategies.

Keywords: exit strategies; state-building; colonial administrations; peace support operations; international administrations; military occupations
