Reducing State Fragilities builds on the work of the LSE-Oxford Fragility Commission to develop & 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.

Reducing State Fragilities (RSF) 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.

RSF will bring 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 security.
