The Department of War Studies, King's College London hosted a conversation with the President of the World Bank, Mr Robert Zoellick on November 11th, 2011. Mr Zoellick discussed the connections between the global financial crisis and its intrinsic links to economy and security with Professor Mats Berdal, Professor of Conflict, Security and Development in the Department of War Studies. The global economic downturn is having an immediate effect on the everyday security of individuals and families in Britain, as well as on the reach and abilities of Western states. Even more profound is the potential impact on the more fragile economies of the poorest states in the world. In its 2011 World Development Report, the World Bank focused on the theme of 'Conflict, Security and Development.' Armed conflicts may have declined in the world, but organised violence continues to blight civilian life with the poorest states worst affected. Some states are trapped in decades-long cycles of conflict and poverty.
