Post-Conflict Economic Reconstruction, Foreign Direct Investment And Odious Debt
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is a key economic benefactor that promotes economic prosperity of a post-
conflict nation. It is important for any nation that is resurrecting its economy during the aftermath of a conflict to accrue the
benefits of FDI recognizing its potentials and capacities. This paper explores the economic aspect of conflict, the key
economic indicators during conflict and the role of FDI in facilitating economic growth in such context. The study also
observes the interplay between FDI and odious debts and how post economic reconstruction policies must try to avoid the
detrimental aspects of FDI to ensure sustainable economic growth.
