Lessons from comparative cases

Aid and institution-building in fragile states: Lessons from comparative cases

Governance & Fragility

Governance has become a major concern for both donors and aid recipient countries since the late 1980s. Very poor quality governance is also one of the defining characteristics of state fragility, and social unrest and violence may both exacerbate and be caused by weak institutions. Our work draws on some 80 studies prepared by UNU-WIDER’s global network.

The meeting was part of Governance and Fragility project.
