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.
