    Abstract

    This aim of the research was to investigate whether earlier intervention by donors, United Nations agencies and Non Government Organizations would improve coordination of technical assistance interventions related to Employment and Skills Development (ES&D) in post-conflict countries. Based on earlier experience the author observed that E&SD activities were not given high priority in the immediate aftermath of civil and international conflicts and as a result coordination of E&SD was not being efficiently undertaken... The initial research reviewed various theories of development and a grounded theory approach was adopted. The author also reflected on experience as a participant observer in a number of countries including Afghanistan, Albania, Bosnia Herzegovina, Cambodia, Kosovo, Lebanon, Liberia and Nepal. More directed research was then carried out specific to Afghanistan. Related Afghanistan E&SD projects were reviewed and interviews held with key informants to determine their perceptions and opinions concerning earlier intervention and coordination.
