Development, War and Peace
By Lloyd J. Dumas, STRW
Development and peace have been two of the major concerns of national and international
political economy for more than fifty years. Yet there is considerable disagreement as to the
nature of the relationship between these two economic and political phenomena.
Some (such as the “liberals/neoliberals”) argue that development encourages peace. People in
better economic condition are less likely to initiate violent conflict both because they are more
content and because they have more to lose from the physical danger and economic disruption
that war brings. Others say that development discourages peace, either because the continued
development of some depends on their forceful suppression or control of others (as the
“dependency” theorists argue) or because development increases the capacity to build and
mobilize military power (as the “neo-realists” argue). Still others (such as the old-line “realists”)
argue that development and peace have no significant connection to each other.
In order to better understand the power and limits of the relationship between development
and peace — and in particular to explore whether development and peace naturally do, or can
be made to, reinforce each other ― it is useful to begin by setting the terms of reference. What
do we mean by “development”? What do we mean by “peace”? What do we mean by
“militarization”? And what do we mean by “war”?
