State Fragility initiative
The State Fragility initiative builds on the work of the LSE-Oxford Commission on State Fragility, Growth, and Development to develop and promote actionable recommendations to address dimensions of state fragility.
State fragility is increasingly recognised as a key driver of extreme poverty, and of the mass migration, terrorism, and trafficking that has sparked global insecurity in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.
The State Fragility initiative (SFi) is an IGC initiative that aims to work with national, regional, and international actors to catalyse new thinking, develop more effective approaches to addressing state fragility, and support collaborative efforts to take emerging consensus into practice.
SFi brings together robust evidence and practical insight to produce and promote actionable, policy-focused guidance for national, regional, and international actors in the following areas: state legitimacy, state effectiveness, private sector development, and conflict and security.
In 2019, the IGC launched SFi to carry forward the engagements started by the Commission on State Fragility, Growth and Development.
SFi is funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) and The Rockefeller Foundation.
