Fragility In The World 2019

Public Policy

Yemen is labelled as the most fragile country by Fragile States Index in 2019. Finland is now the least fragile country.

Source: https://fragilestatesindex.org/

(Highlights from Fragile States Index)

“This year, Yemen claimed the top position for the first time as a result of its civil war and humanitarian catastrophe. Although Yemen’s top ranking may provide cause for idle chatter, really the most attention should be given to its rapid worsening over the past decade, and the regional instability and power plays for which its population are unspeakably suffering.

In 2019, an African nation has, for the first time, ranked in the “Very Stable” category, with Mauritius ascending to join the likes of the United Kingdom and United States. Just as Mauritius this year became the first African country to break through to the Very Stable category, it is also important to recognize that Singapore became the first Asian nation to move into the Sustainable category.”

There is still widespread fragility and vulnerability, plenty of poverty and inequality, and conflict and illiberalism. But broadly speaking, over the long-term, the world is becoming steadily less fragile. It often takes cold, hard data — like that produced by the FSI — to demonstrate that for all the negative press, there is significant progress occurring in the background.”

J.J. Messner, Executive Director

Two countries tied for most-worsened over the past 12 months.

“Venezuela has been beset by enormous turmoil, and in the wake of a contested and deeply flawed election in 2018, now finds itself with two leaders. Brazil’s internal challenges remain significant, with tumultuous politics and a new president who came to power through a campaign fuelled by harsh right-wing rhetoric.”

As per World Economic Forum, “Any UK citizens alarmed at seeing their nation ranked as the fourth most-worsened will find that three of the 12 indicators used to compile the index were largely behind the low score: the behaviour of ruling elites, social divisions and state legitimacy.

The authors point to the influence of Brexit as a factor. But they say that long-term worsening of the UK’s score predates the country’s referendum on membership of the European Union.

Even before 2016, the authors say the UK had the seventh worst trend for the same three indicators, and suggest the country’s problems are deep-rooted and unlikely to be solved by leaving the EU.

The US made it into the Most Worsened category thanks to poor scores in the same categories as the UK plus a sliding score on human rights and respect for the law, in part reflecting political divisions, legal controversies and the issue of immigration.

“After having ranked as the most-worsened country in the 2017 FSI, Ethiopia has staged a remarkable turn-around this year, ranking as the most-improved country in the wake of the ambitious reform agenda that has led to more political and social inclusiveness, breaking down the previous ethno-centric system that the country endured for decades.”

As per World Economic forum, We need more investors who are willing to take chances in countries that need us most. These are places where we can all make the greatest difference in ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. These are the places where economic and social progress would ensure peace and stability.”

    US, UK and France more stable than Russia or China?

    Seriously…

    The only way to stop America is to close all 800 US military bases overseas, dismantle NATO and prosecute all war criminals who pose a threat to global peace and stability. The best way to resolve conflict is by dialogue, not aggression. The truth is that we are our own worst enemies (all of us have a positive/negative, masculine/feminine energies).

    Not quite sure what this is actually measuring. Stability of a nation is a measure of the likelihood that it will still exist in it’s present form at some predetermined point in the future.

    It isn’t a judgement on the legitimacy of a nation’s government, or how socially responsible it’s elites are, or how much poverty or inequality there is.

    It is possible for a country to do badly in all of these things and still be quite stable, if the people are sufficiently oppressed and controlled.

    As a Canadian, I will never fight in any of Amerika’s wars. Never did, never will.

    There is a way that Afghanistan can be rebuilt: 1.destroy all of the drugs (burn them), 2.force the NATO and US military to surrender (they cannot take over Afghanistan- which is why it is nicknamed “the Graveyard Of Empires”), 3. the Afghans have every right to defend themselves against the occupying troops. 4. designate Blackwater as a terrorist organization on par with Daesh (IS/ISIL/ISIS)

  6. Gaia on Sun, 21st Apr 2019 7:10 pm 

    The only way the world can be made a safe place is when America is forced to disarm itself (gets rid of all of its nuclear weapons, even from Turkey, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany), close down all of its overseas 800 bases, dismantles NATO and arrest, prosecute and jails every war criminals and enablers. America is no friend.

  7. Gaia on Sun, 21st Apr 2019 7:14 pm 

    Israel should be disarmed and dismantled through nonviolent means. All “settlements” should be demolished and the occupied lands (Gaza, West Bank and the Golan Heights) returned to their rightful owners (Syrians, Palestinians).

  8. Gaia on Sun, 21st Apr 2019 7:36 pm 

    There should a global alliance created against NATO/The US and Israel.

  9. Sissyfuss on Sun, 21st Apr 2019 7:38 pm 

    That’s a pretty big wish list, Gaia and none of it is on Trumps agenda. With the Dems looking more and more like putting up a corporate good old boy against the Grifter he may last another 6 years. Won’t that be fun and tragic all in the same.

    “There should a global alliance created against NATO/The US and Israel.”

    Not necessary to form an alliance against an entity that is in the process of committing suicide anyway. Besides, you would only feed the MIC.

    No, it is better to sit out the bloke, have a secret understanding between the EU, Russia and China, not to provoke each other into war.

    Just like the (US engineered) Eiropean civil war from 1939, enabled the US and USSR to take over Europe, likewise will CW2 enable Eurasia to dismember empire (and Israel). CW2 will probably happen shortly after the end of the oresidency of DJT.

    Patience. Build pipelines to Russia, install solar and wind, set up an EU army, eat cheese and drink wine, deliver a soft Brexit.

    One wonders why that is. Asking the question is answering it.

    You’re rather cocky for a man who lives under a Marxist dictatorship that is bent on destroying him. All of your presumptions about a glorious European future depend upon the European Right being able to stage a Coup d’état of existing European power structures. Whilst the Right are expanding their vote share, it is far from certain that you will be able to achieve this by any peaceful means.

    As things stand, the most likely targets of a European army are precisely those people that stand against the Globalist idealists; Hungary, Poland, Italy and Austria. So be careful what you wish for.

    You’re rather cocky for a man who lives under a Marxist dictatorship that is bent on destroying him.

    Under a real dictatorship, populist parties would not be possible, yet they are. The EU is not comparable to the USSR, the ally of the US and USA during WW2.

    All of your presumptions about a glorious European future depend upon the European Right being able to stage a Coup d’état of existing European power structures.

    Never used the word “glorious”. I don’t even hope for a populist takeover. It suffices to achieve a coalition between parties like a post-Merkel CDU and AfD, like we allready have in Austria. Eastern Europe is immune for multicult propaganda, Italy is already more or less in safety. France is on the brink. Brexit could be the tipping point. A little hostility between EU and UK could lower the threshold EU-Eussia. A CW2 in the US means the end of the dominance of the left in Europe.

    EU afraid of importing Brexit mess into Europe:

    https://youtu.be/vTupP1zkjNw

    I predict that in the end of the day, the EU will chose EU interest over allegiance to the West. Britain has no other desire than to blow up the EU, in line with 500 years of balance of power and splendid isolation policies. AND THE EU KNOWS THAT AND WILL ACT UPON IT. The best that can happen is a Corbyn government and a soft Brexit. In case the ERG takes over, even an iron curtain over the Channel is possible (as Orwell predicted).

    Here the current liberal Dutch foreign minister, confessing in private that in his view there is no example of a peaceful multicultural society:

    https://youtu.be/AXeBJJbej9M

    There was some weak protest in the media, he backtracked a little (“out of context”, bla-bla”), but he is still FM.

    Continental Europe is VERY different from Anglosphere. And potentially post-communist Russia is on OUR side, where communist Russia was on yours. That’s why we are going to survive and I am so “cocky”.

    Cloggie, instead of complaining. Be grateful with what you have. As an old proverb says: A loaf of bread is better than none.

    Hey Davy, I am not “better” or “worst” than everyone else. Enough said.

    Here’s another words of wisdom: Health is one of the most valuable possessions. Treasure and protect it.

    gaia is definitely a mindless sock or a mindless commenter. He reminds me of kenz700 that used to moralize green and liberal issues in bot ads daily. I am not sure if this is juanP sock because of this:
    Gaia on Mon, 22nd Apr 2019 1:09 pm
    Peak Oil Ombudsman on Mon, 22nd Apr 2019 1:09 pm
    With Peak Oil Ombudsman is a juanpee sock.
    I guess it is possible two comments can post in the same minute. Now I do see this as a likely juanpee identity theft:
    “Gaia, cut the crap. I know damn well you are a JuanPee sock.” Or GregT?”
    Cut the crap is juanpee talk not cloggo.

    Juanpee is a piece of shit that pollutes this board with all kinds of theft and deception. He takes no position really just likes to warp out the place. Deport the bastard illegal alien and confiscate his ill-gotten property.

  27. To be or not to be on Tue, 23rd Apr 2019 5:03 am 

    To be or not to be a JuanP sock. That is the question.

    dumb shit juanpee being a GED dumbshit.

    you can scare him out of the brush pretty easy.

    This is for makato who revels in American disasters. Now he gets one at his doorstep.

    “Rescuers race to find survivors after Philippine quake kills 16”
    https://tinyurl.com/yym2xtm5

    “PORAC, Philippines, April 23 (Reuters) – Rescue teams in the Philippines searched for signs of life beneath the tangled debris from a collapsed four-story commercial building on Tuesday after a strong earthquake shook the country’s biggest island, killing at least 16 people. Heavy equipment and search dogs were used as dozens of firefighters, military and civilian rescuers shifted through mangled metal and lumps of concrete in Porac, a town 110 km (68 miles) north of Manila, where 12 people were killed by a 6.1 magnitude earthquake that struck on Monday.

    “Another, stronger earthquake with a magnitude of 6.5 struck in Samar island in the central Philippines on Tuesday afternoon, but there were no reports of injuries or major damage. The national disaster agency said the Monday earthquake injured 81 people and damaged 29 buildings across Luzon island, with 14 people reported missing.”

    All churches in the European Union, US and Canada should be stripped of tax-exemption status and the money given by the congregation should be used to pay off the massive debt.
