The phenomenon of state fragility has become a mounting concern to the
international community in the last decades. This edited volume consists
of a compilation of articles that evaluates how countries may recover and
return to a path of stable and democratic development. In its 17 chapters,
the contributors analyze the difficult transformation processes of four
countries: Afghanistan, Georgia, Kosovo and Moldova. The authors tackle
theoretical approaches to state reform as well as country specific issues
like the role of external actors, security sector reform, and
anti-corruption strategies.
