A successful reconstruction is characterized by a widespread coordination problem, combined with potential pockets of conﬂict. We analyze the array of relationships that take place in the reconstruction process - political, economic and social - by considering under what circumstances they are situations of conﬂict or coordination. Historical attempts at reconstruction provide further understanding of how to achieve success.
