What is the (New) Deal with Fragile States?

United Nations University

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 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 Development”.
