List of countries by Fragile States Index

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of countries by order of appearance in the Fragile States Index of the United States think-tank Fund for Peace. A fragile state has several attributes. Common indicators include a state whose central government is so weak or ineffective, that it has little practical control over much of its territory; non-provision of public services; widespread corruption and criminality; refugees and involuntary movement of populations and sharp economic decline. Since 2005, the index has been published annually by the Fund for Peace and the magazine Foreign Policy.[1] The list has been cited by journalists and academics in making broad comparative points about countries or regions.[2][3]

This is the list for 2014,[4] with comparisons of each country's current score to previous years' indices.

The report uses 12 factors to determine the rating for each nation including security threats, economic implosion, human rights violations and refugee flows.
