This book enhances our understanding of socioeconomic recovery. It develops a social perspective on socio-economic recovery in crisis-affected or fragile settings. It views socio-economic processes as embedded in people's strategies to rebuild their lives and livelihoods, institutional change and aid interventions. Using field-based research to capture complex unfolding realities on the ground, it looks at how people and communities seek order and security in emerging or changing institutions, from the community level up to the engagement of actors in the formation and reshaping of state institutions.
