Workshop on Institutions in Conflicted and Fragile States

On October 25, 2017, UCL’s Global Governance Institute (GGI) and Conflict & Change members Kristin M. Bakke, Alexandra Hartman, and Kit Rickard hosted a workshop on “Institutions in Conflicted and Fragile States.” The workshop, which was organized in collaboration with UCL’s Institute of Advanced Studies (IAE), brought together more than 20 practitioners, policy-makers, and academics.

Contrary to the common perception that conflict and instability lead to a governance vacuum, recent scholarship stresses the importance and variety of institutions in states affected by armed conflict and violence. A series of three roundtable discussions provided participants with the opportunity to discuss cutting-edge research and new ideas in the areas of property rights, governance and justice and reconciliation.
