Who: Ashraf Ghani, Chair, Institute for State Effectiveness; former Finance Minister, Afghanistan’s Transitional Administration. Clare Lockhart, Director, Institute for State Effectiveness
Event: Today between forty and sixty nations, totaling two billion people, have either collapsed or are on the brink of failure. Encompassing the world’s worst problems, the international community has devoted billions of dollars, yet these efforts have not succeeded. In their new book, Fixing Failed States, Ashraf Ghani and Clare Lockhart consider why past efforts have not worked and argue that only an integrated state-building approach, assigning responsibility equally among the international community, national leaders, and citizens, can heal these failing countries. Ghani and Lockhart have taken an active part in the effort to save failed states for many years, serving as World Bank officials, as advisers to the U.N., and as high-level participants in the new government of Afghanistan.
