In countries impacted by violence or navigating difficult political transitions,
a narrow concept of security has proved inadequate. The achievement
of citizen security - both freedom from physical violence and freedom from
fear of violence applied to the lives of all Members of society
- catalyzes progress. Yet, in promoting citizen security, traditional
security and development actors often become entangled in questions of
mandate, role, and operating space.
In operationalizing the 2011 World Development Report: Conflict, Security
and Development, the World Bank is moving forward new partnerships and
integrated security-development approaches to prevent, manage and recover
from both civil and criminal violence. But in complex operating environments
from South Sudan and Cote d'Ivoire to Libya, Afghanistan and Yemen, truly
integrated operations have been rare. National and international
leadership struggle to preserve their organizational principles, objectives,
and implementation arrangements while navigating an increasingly crowded
set of players and diverse agendas.
Key questions addressed included:
- How can development actors support citizen
security outcomes? And how do security actors support the economic
development outcomes that underpin peace?
- How can security and development actors together
set a forward agenda to promote citizen security and development gains?
