Title: Think global, act global: Confronting global factors that influence conflict and fragility
Author: OECD DAC
Institution: OECD DAC
Publication Date: September, 2012
This publication by the OECD-DAC highlights the impact of globalisation on conflict and fragility – particularly with increased integration. It argues the world has become a more stable and equitable place with increased interdependencies as a result of globalization. The key lesson from this publication is in an increasingly interdependent and inter-connected world, there is a need to change the way we tackle global drivers of conflict and fragility. The publication argues the impact of these global factors requires effective global processes, regimes and responses in order to tackle them.
At the same time, the report acknowledges these global factors can also have a profound influence on whether countries grow, remain safe and cooperate with each other. The publication is useful for policy makers and practitioners who work on/across global, cross border and transnational issues.
