State fragility is widespread. Depending on the definition, up to half of all states are fragile and lack essential state capacities. They cannot provide basic services security, and participation in governance processes to citizens. State fragility also hinders economic development, weakens accountability and makes violent conflicts more probable.Once states become fragile, it is very likely that they become stuck in fragility. Yet, there are examples of countries finding ways out of fragility.
