Abstract: Although in recent years the international community has focused on how to fix fragile states, none of its standard remedies – more aid, economic reform and larger peacekeeping forces – has really addressed the fundamental problems troubling these places. In this article, it is argued that fractured societies require a new approach, one that is more firmly rooted in indigenous capacities and institutions.
