This paper analyses how international development organisations conceptualise and operationalise the concept of state fragility. We identify two principal dimensions within donors’ definitions of state fragility: one distinguishes between a focus on development outcomes such as poverty reduction and the legitimacy of the government while the other differentiates conflict and security from the capacity of the state.
