Theory meets Policy by Ronald Wormgoor, Strategic Policy Adviser, Stabilisation and Humanitarian Aid Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs
This debate tries to gain more insights into contemporary fragile states theories, including: Which leading theories have been taken up into fragile states policy today? (e.g. ideas presented by North, Wallis, Weingast; Acemoglu & Robison; Tilly; etc.) Can concrete examples be identified, demonstrating the influence and impact these theories have had on international policy for fragile states?
