Governance In Post Crisis Settings08 Feb 2012
A quarter of the world’s population lives in countries where state capacities are limited and societies experience high levels of fragility due to the repercussions of war or disaster. In these contexts, states cannot provide security and basic
services to their citizens or effectively manage the process of recovery.
At least 30 of those countries are currently afflicted with armed conflicts that threaten citizen’s lives, undermine the rule of law, and disrupt the political order. Many more countries are affected by widespread organized crime or drug-related violence on top of social and political unrest.
