Failed by Design

(p.62) II Statebuilding
Failed Statebuilding

Oliver P. Richmond

Yale University Press

This chapter explores the statebuilding response to often violent and criminal state-formation dynamics, often described as failed states. It discusses the decrease of criminality and violence and assurance of individual rights and freedoms by approaches to statebuilding. It also shows that negative hybrid peace is the result of statebuilding as it comes from the power and interests of state and international elites. In various contemporary statebuilding examples, the degree to which the ‘failed statebuilding’ design has resulted in a positive or negative form of hybrid peace is then addressed using empirical sketches.

Keywords:   statebuilding, failed states, hybrid peace, criminality, violence
