State Resilience and Fragility Program

The State Resilience and Fragility Program analyzes how democracies, autocracies, hybrid regimes, and other states adapt to external and internal changes and pressures. It seeks to understand how states manage social, political, socioeconomic, and security challenges to maintain power and the ensuing implications and options for U.S. interests and policy. 

This program pays special attention to transnational learning, in which different states adopt strategies and techniques from one another to maintain control over territory and populations.
