Failed States Index for 2008

The Fund for Peace releases a lovely map of their Failed States Index for 2008

12 indicators were used to create this lovely animated map of failed states in 2008, including some of HFP’s favourite research subjects. These include:

  • Mounting demographic pressure
  • Massive movement of refugees or IDP’s creating complex humanitarian emergencies
  • Sharp or severe economic decline

They also published an excellent article discussing these trends in Foreign Policy, which can be found here.  Click the map below for a link to the Fund for Peace’s website on this project.
