States of Fragility and Global Violence: An OECD Report

  • USIP 2301 Constitution Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20037 United States (map)

Twenty-two percent of the global population now live in countries where human development is hampered by fragility and violence. On Tuesday, January 24, USIP, OECD, and other specialists will discuss OECD’s States of Fragility report, which presents a new approach for measuring the extent of fragility. The new OECD approach examines five dimensions of fragility—economic, environmental, political, security, and societal—and identifies the 56 countries and territories that have above moderate fragility.

Discussion will include the implications of OECD’s new approach for policies, and recent insights into fragility achieved through OECD’s work and through the Fragility Study Group, which includes USIP and recently released its own study, U.S. Leadership and the Challenge of State Fragility.
