International Security, Failed States:
One of the defining characteristics of a “successful government” is the responsibility to protect its citizens; what happens when a state can no longer provide national security, or when the government itself threatens the people? How do failed states come to be? How do they impact other nations around the world?
The topic of failed states is an issue that has become prevalent in recent years, and one that global organizations are struggling to address. This institute will ask students what it means to live in a country without a government, and whose responsibility it is to rebuild a state after a failure. For students interested in international relations and security, this is an excellent opportunity!
