Post-conflict reconstruction is not new to the Bank. In fact, the Bank's first loan was to the Government of France to rebuild the country after World War II. What is new, is the rapidly increasing number of post-conflict areas, and the enormity and complexity of rebuilding in each case. To better assist post-conflict areas in the future, the Bank is studying past experiences in dealing with post-conflict reconstruction. This volume represents the first in a series. The other volumes discuss post-conflict reform in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Uganda. Although the Bank played a significant role

This paper investigates how the potential duration of unemployment benefits affects the quality of post-unemployment jobs. It takes advantage of a natural experiment introduced by a change in Slovenia's unemployment insurance law that substantially reduced the potential benefit duration. Although this reduction strongly increased job finding rates, the quality of the post-unemployment jobs remained unaffected. The paper finds that the law change had no effect on the type of contract (temporary versus permanent), the duration of the post-unemployment job, or the wage earned in the job.
