Summary
This book examines the various ways in which some fragile states in the Global South (or states with limited statehood) have adopted, and adapted to, processes of governance in their quests to address the socialized problems affecting their societies. It tells the story of these states’ resilience in the societal adaptation to a liberalized notion of governance. In addition to comparative case studies, the book also analyzes the engendered interplay of culture, economics, and politics in the creation of people-centric governance reforms. The contributing authors shed light on weak states’ often constructive engagement in the promotion of state governance under a variety of societal conditions, adverse or otherwise, and on their ability to remain resilient despite the complexities of the political and economic challenges they face. Helen Ware is a Professor of Development Practice at the University of New England, Australia. She is a former Australian ambassador to African countries (Angola and Namibia), human rights officer, and senior AusAID official. John Idriss Lahai is Research Fellow at the University of New England, USA. He is former Policy Lead and Director of Research for several projects in sub-Saharan Africa for a consortium of USA/Australia-based research intensive universities.--
