What is the (New) Deal with Fragile States?
Poor governance and lack of state capabilities in around 45 countries pose a threat to global security and development. The involvement of the international community is required to help these states break out of their low developmentâ€“ high-conflict traps. Recent years have seen a number of notable initiatives, including a â€œNew Deal on Fragile Statesâ€ 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 â€œFragility and Developmentâ€. [UNU_WIDER Policy Brief No.1, 2012].
