A new approach to state fragility

CIFAR, IGC, and the British Academy are convening thought leaders in government, the private sector, and civil society for a robust conversation about Escaping the fragility trap – the recent report of the LSE-Oxford Commission on State Fragility, Growth and Development.

Estimates suggest that by 2030, half of the world’s poor will live in countries that are fragile. This report argues a new global approach to state fragility and international aid is needed for countries caught in the ‘fragility trap’. Through a panel discussion at the British Academy, Commissioners share their findings and explore the implications.

When: 17:00 -18:30 BST, 28 June

Where: The British Academy, London, UK
