Fragile states and peacebuilding in the new global context


This project examines the concept of state fragility and current approaches to peace- and statebuilding in fragile settings.  It focuses in particular on the role of transnational and cross-boundary factors that may contribute to state fragility (e.g.  trade in illicit commodities and natural resources;  transnational organized crime, global financial flows) and their interplay with local dynamics and actors. The project was funded by the Ford Foundation and is completed.
