From Kinshasa to Kandahar

Canada and Fragile States in Historical Perspective

Dir. : Michael K. Carroll and Greg Donaghy

Failed or fragile states are those that are unable or unwilling to provide a socio-political framework for citizens and meet their basic needs. They are a source of terrorism and international crime, infectious disease, environmental degradation, and unregulated mass migration. Canada’s engagement with countries such as the Congo, East Timor, Bosnia, and Afghanistan underlines the commitment of successive Canadian governments to addressing the threats posed to Western security by state fragility. In this book, leading Canadian historians and political scientists explore Canada’s historic relationship with fragile states from the 1960s to the present.
