Fragility, Conflict & Statebuilding
States of fragility are of major concern to actors spanning from local citizens to global policy makers. Not only are they particularly prone to violent conflict, they are also held responsible for a range of public bads transcending national borders. While ‘fragility’ is pervasive in donor and aid organizations’ thinking, the concept remains unclear and fuels the debate on how the international community should best respond. This course focuses on the conceptual, policy and implementation challenges of statebuilding in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.
Due to COVID-19, the Fragility, Conflict & Statebuilding course (initially scheduled for 14 - 16 October 2020) was postponed. It will take place from 25 to 27 November 2020 instead.
