‘Failed’ States and Terrorism
- 106 Downloads
The political vocabulary of international affairs has recently been expanded with new terms such as ‘failed’ states and ‘rogue’ states. The ‘failed’ states have attracted considerable scholarly attention. Robert Rotberg and his colleagues at Harvard’s Failed States Project have devoted an entire book to the concept, defining ‘failed’ states as those which are ‘consumed by internal violence and cease delivering positive political goods to their inhabitants’ (Rotberg 2004). The ‘rogue’ state is less of a scholarly term; in fact, it is an American political term which denotes a dictatorship or a repressive state.
