  • Wim Naudé

The involvement of the international community is required to help these states break out of their low development– high-conflict traps. Recent years have seen a number of notable initiatives, including a “New Deal on Fragile States†announced in November 2011 by the g7+ and their international partners. This Policy Brief casts some light on this New Deal from the perspective of the UNU-WIDER research project “Fragility and Developmentâ€. [UNU_WIDER Policy Brief No.1, 2012]. URL:[].
