Item description for Making States Work: State Failure And The Crisis Of Governance by Simon Chesterman, Michael Ignatieff & Ramesh Chandra Thakur...

It is frequently assumed that the collapse of state structures, whether through defeat by an external power or as a result of internal chaos, leads to a vacuum of political power, though this is rarely the case. This book examines the strategies and tactics of international actors, local political elites, and civil society groups, to build or rebuild public institutions before they reach the point of failure: to make the state work.
