State Fragility

In recent years, the international policy community has begun to grapple more systematically with the challenges posed by state fragility, evidenced by commitments made by donor governments and institutions to adapt aid policies for countries in fragile situations.

This program provides policy analysis to enhance understanding of state fragility and improve engagement with fragile states. It builds on past IPI work on the role of the state in consolidating peace, and international efforts to build capable and legitimate states in the wake of conflict.
