Political Science Discussion Week 5
Read the Rotberg article, Failed states in a world of terror, in this week’s assigned readings. What is the connection between failed (now referred to as fragile) states and terrorism and other forms of political violence? Provide an example of a failed/fragile state that is associated with terrorism. In addition to terrorism and other forms of political violence, what other problems are generally associated with failed/fragile states? What can or should the international community do to address this issue?
