Fixing Failed States

The experience of failed states provides profound lessons about what works, the very foundation of civil society. Clare Lockhart, co-founder and CEO of the Institute for State Effectiveness, and co-author of the book Fixing Failed States, will lay out for us a 10-function framework for measuring state accountability and propose a new approach for addressing societies facing poverty and instability. In the process, she will address the balance between state, market and civil society for the 21st century, and share stories from her work in places ranging from Nepal and Afghanistan to Sudan and Haiti.
