What constitutes a failed state? This week, we will examine that question and more as part of our weekly theme:
- We talk to ISN Security Watch correspondent in Mogdishu Abdurrahman Warsemeh about Somalia, the country that is seen by some as the epitome of a failed state, in the latest edition of ISN Podcasts.
- In Policy Briefs, Jonathan Di John of the London School of Economic’s Crisis States Research Centre examines the actual definition of a failed state in Conceptualising the Causes and Consequences of Failed States.
- The Ibrahim Index of African Governance is the latest edition to the Links Library.
