The Hidden Success for Fragile States

Reflections on Potentials and Challenges

Accompanying the Munich Security Conference 2017

The event focuses on distinctions of fragility in Afghanistan and Somalia and general reflections drawn from these two examples. Both countries face problems of fragility, political instability, violence and conflict as well as poverty. Both have to deal with various stakeholders and their respective interests. Yet they find themselves in very distinct situations.
