Cover of 'Exiting the Fragility Trap'

Exiting the Fragility Trap
Rethinking Our Approach to the World’s Most Fragile States
By David Carment and Yiagadeesen Samy

Carment and Samy investigate the dynamics of state transitions in fragile contexts, with a focus on states trapped in fragility. They consider fragility’s evolution in trapped countries; in those that move in and out of it; and in those that have exited it, thus taking a major step toward a new theory of the so-called fragility trap.
