Synopsis:

The Sovereignty Gap – the 40-60 countries which cannot serve their populations – are emerging as one of today's central challenges. To date, international efforts in countries ranging from Somalia and Haiti to Iraq and Afghanistan have not been successful, seeing billions of dollars spent on poorly designed efforts, applying 20th century tools to 21st century problems. Building on successful examples of leadership of transformation of countries, from Singapore and Spain to Ireland and the American South, "Fixing Failed States" sets out a roadmap for leading countries out of poverty and conflict to stability and prosperity. Clare Lockhart will speak to the challenges faced and how such examples can offer significant guidance to policy-makers today.
