Establishing State Legitimacy and Effectiveness in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Societies

Exploring the role of norms, values, and narratives in establishing state legitimacy and the effective functioning of state organisations.

When a society collapses into disorder it is a tragedy for its citizens and sometimes a global nightmare. The project focuses on fragile and conflict affected states and will explore the role of norms, values, and narratives in establishing state legitimacy and the effective functioning of state organisations. This research is a partnership with the London School of Economics and the International Growth Centre and partially supports the Commission on State Fragility, Growth and Development.

Expected outputs: 18 country reports, and evidence sessions
