List of countries by Fragile States Index

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

This is a list of countries by order of appearance in the Fragile States Index (formerly the Failed 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.[1] Since 2005, the index has been published annually by the Fund for Peace and the magazine Foreign Policy. 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 2019,[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.

Indicators of a fragile state[edit]

The following factors are used by Fund For Peace to ascertain the status of a country.[5]

Social[edit]

  • Mounting demographic pressures and tribal, ethnic and/or religious conflicts.
  • Massive internal and external displacement of refugees, creating severe humanitarian emergencies.
  • Widespread vengeance-seeking group grievances.
  • Chronic and sustained human flight.

Economic[edit]

Political[edit]

  • Delegitimization of the state.
  • Deterioration of public services.
  • Suspension or arbitrary application of law; widespread human rights abuses.
  • Security forces operating as a "state within a state" often with impunity.
  • Rise of factionalized elites.
  • Intervention of external political agents and foreign states.
