Summary: This world development report aims to sharpen the discussion on what can be done to support societies struggling to prevent or grapple with violence and conflict. Some of the ground that the report covers falls outside the World Bank's traditional development mandate, a reflection of a growing international policy consensus that addressing violent conflict and promoting economic development both require a deeper understanding of the close relationship between politics, security, and development. In studying this area, the World Bank does not aspire to go beyond its core mandate as set out in its articles of agreement, but rather to improve the effectiveness of development interventions in places threatened or affected by large-scale violence. The 2011 world development report looks across disciplines and experiences drawn from around the world to offer some ideas and practical recommendations on how to move beyond conflict and fragility and secure development. The key messages are important for all countries-low, middle, and high income-as well as for regional and global institutions. First, institutional legitimacy is the key to stability. Second, investing in citizen security, justice, and jobs is essential to reducing violence. Third, confronting this challenge effectively means that institutions need to change. Fourth, need to adopt a layered approach. Fifth, in adopting these approaches, need to be aware that the global landscape is changing.
