States on the brink

DIPLOMAT_6-30-2017_0053The Fragile States Index is based on a conflict-assessment framework known as “CAST” that was developed by FFP nearly a quarter-century ago for assessing how vulnerable states are to collapse. The CAST framework measures this vulnerability in pre-conflict, active conflict and post-conflict situations and continues to be used widely by policy-makers, field practitioners and community networks. The methodology uses qualitative and quantitative indicators, relies on public source data and produces quantifiable results.
Twelve conflict risk indicators measure the condition of a state at any given moment. The indicators provide a snapshot in time that can be measured against other snapshots to determine whether conditions are improving or worsening.
