Promoting peace is one of the areas of focus of the Rotary Foundation. This page provides links to selected open access publications from the World Bank on peace, conflict, and violence. The hope is that these resources will be useful to Rotarians and others working on peace and conflict resolution. The focus is on books published by the World Bank since 2010 as opposed to working papers, journal articles, and briefs.
The publications were selected as a resource for participants at the 2016 Rotary Presidential Conference on Peace and Conflict Prevention and Resolution in Ontario, California. The scope of the conference is broad, with 13 parallel tracks apart from plenary sessions. These 13 tracks have been aggregated into 9 topics for listing selected World Bank publications. The publications below range from the comprehensive World Development Report 2011 on Conflict, Security, and Development, to more specialized publications. A paper including abstracts and pictures for the selected publications is available on the Blog Series page of this blog.
Please note that this compilation of recent publications is provided as a service to Rotarians and others working on these areas without any endorsement of the World Bank as to which publications should be featured.
