• A Political Economy Perspective of How Corruption Happens in Conflict and Peacebuilding.

      Pugh, Michael C. (Unversity of Bradford., 2007)
      This commentary adopts a critical political economy perspective and therefore contests the liberal order that divorces the political from the economic. Orthodox `economy building¿ operations adopt unreflective assumptions about economic laws and treat economic reform as a technical, a-political, value-free issue. Nor does the critical perspective offered here endorse the liberal project¿s assumption that physical and structural violence can be artificially divorced. This piece contends that distributive injustice and structural violence continue when physical violence stops.
