Congo, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Somalia—how can infrastructure help bring peace and stability? Access to well-functioning and sustainable infrastructure is both fundamental for economic development and essential to human wellbeing. It is no accident that some of the world’s most daunting conflict zones also have the biggest infrastructure needs. What are the limits and opportunities for infrastructure in conflict zones? How can Denmark and Danish companies contribute to peace and stability through infrastructure? Which infrastructure programmes may contribute to economic growth, poverty reduction and improved access to services? Nikolaj Gilbert, Director, United Nations Office for Project Support (UNOPS), Peer Shouten, Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), Jesper H. Brix, MFS (Læger uden Grænser) and Stephen Hart, European Investment Bank discuss their experience of successes and risks associated with infrastructure projects in fragile and conflict-affected states.
