Statebuilding and 'Fragile States' (CISS6006)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit examines the characteristics of so-called fragile and failed states, and the nature of donor and international community engagement with these states. It will explore the international community's gradual acceptance of the norms of humanitarian intervention and post-conflict reconstruction to assist civilians affected by civil war, insurgencies, state repression, institutional weakness and state collapse. The unit will expand upon the theoretical literature with evidence from case studies on Africa, the Middle East, South/Central Asia and the Asia-Pacific.
