Concepts and dilemmas of State building in fragile situations: From fragility to resilience
OECD Journal on Development, 2009, vol. 9, issue 3, 61-148
This paper aims to fill a significant gap and bring greater clarity to the policy discussion about state building. It offers important insights into the causes and features of fragility, and how states can reach stability and resilience over time. The report highlights that state building needs to be seen in the context of state formation and state-society relations. It provides practical recommendations for donors that wish to support national state-building processes.
