While international development agencies can play an important role in improving the lives of the poor and strengthening the economic and governance institutions that serve them, their operations require a deep understanding of context that is informed by a historical perspective on how power and economic benefits have been distributed. This paper examines the effects of conflict on development, and argues that aid agencies should focus on how inequality is created and sustained. It further provides recommendations for aid agencies working in post-conflict situations.
