La Construcción De Un "Estado Fallido" En La Política Mundial: El Caso De Las Relaciones Entre Estados Unidos Y Colombia
Tokatlian,Juan Gabriel;
Análisis Político , 2008,
Abstract: this article analyzes the way in which the topic of "failed states" has been building up in the international strategy of the united states and the manner of that construction to have appeared in the relations between the united states and colombia during the last decade. our main purpose is to demonstrate that the "failed state" affair and its place in washington's foreign and defense policy, as well as the preponderance of such a phenomenon within the colombian-american bonds, have been socially and politically built. it implies that this text assigns an important place to ideas -in this case, the notion of "failed state"- in the actors' identity setting up, in the establishment of their interests and development of policies.
?Estados fallidos o conceptos fallidos?: La clasificación de las fallas estatales y sus problemas
Gutiérrez Sanín,Francisco;
Revista de Estudios Sociales , 2010,
Abstract: the problem of "state failiures" is currently one of the main challenges faced by the international policy led by the united states. in general, first world countries consider that crisis and state failure are the primary source of terrorism, violence, internal conflict, and civil war and promote migration waves, destabilize neighboring nations, and have the tendency of disturbing economic relations. the need to neutralize this foreseen risk has led some high global impact agencies to develop indicators for identifying, evaluating, and monitoring weak states, thereby constructing a base of information which aids the international community in their decision making, and allowing for the analysis and conceptualization of the subject in specialized literature. the objective of this article is to propose a critical evaluation of said indicators, use them as a window through which relevant literature can be observed, and discuss how colombia's situation can be interpreted from there.
A pirataria desarma-se em terra: o caso da Somália
Saraiva,Luís Eduardo; Joana,Pierre-Michel;
Rela??es Internacionais (R:I) , 2011,

Of Terrorists, Neoimperialism and Failed States. In which way the World is following the Nation-State?
Matías Ilivitzky
Latin American Journal of International Affairs , 2011,
Abstract: This article aims to explore tensions existing in the current theory of international security after the fall of the USSR and the creation of an alleged “New World Order”, in which US hegemony is central. The main objective is to establish if multilateralism, which was predominant as a paradigm during the ‘90’s, has been replaced by the unilateralism of the next decade or if, on the contrary, it is still prevailing in a new way.

Conceptualización de las causas y consecuencias de los Estados fallidos: una rese?a crítica de la literatura
Di John,Jonathan;
Revista de Estudios Sociales , 2010,
Abstract: this article provides a critical review of recent literature which has attempted to define what a 'failed state' is and explain why such states emerge. it is argued that aggregate indices of 'failure' are misleading due to the wide variations of capacity across state functions within a polity. the focus on ranking states also distracts attention away from analyses concerning the dynamics of state capacity. moreover, many of the definitions either compare reality to a weberian ideal, or assume that violence is 'development in reverse', both of which are ahistorical and unhelpful as a guide to policy. the second part of the paper assesses the contributions of functionalist, 'new war', and neo-tillean approaches to explaining state failure. the paper finds that while these theories take concrete historical situations seriously, they have important theoretical and empirical shortcomings. finally, the conclusion outlines an agenda for further research.

The dilemma of the failed state thesis in post-9/11 world affairs
A. Schoeman
Koers : Bulletin for Christian Scholarship , 2008, DOI: 10.4102/koers.v73i4.182
Abstract: The 9/11 terrorist attacks shifted the emphasis of failed states as just a regional humanitarian problem to one that could present a global security threat. In this regard US policymakers, especially, identified failed states as possible terrorist threats. However, this renewed attention to the study of state failure has exposed a number of theoretical weaknesses in this body of literature. The latter could mainly be ascribed to the way in which US policy makers have often used generalised definitions of failed states and then applied it to states that are perceived as threats. Another problem is the fact that government sponsored research institutes and think tanks are operating independently from university academics. This situation has caused theoretical confusion as conditions in failed states are often interpreted differently resulting in the development of a number of opposing theories, definitions and confusing classification models. The body of literature is further accused of endorsing a “Weberian” definition (ideal type) of the state against which degrees of “failure” in non-complying states are measured. This article will investigate the extent of these theoretical weaknesses and expose the dangers of following an approach that seem to misinterpret the political realities of developing states (often regarded as failed) – this despite having an extensive popular following. It will further focus on possible alternative approaches – or the formulation of ideas that are better suited and relevant to the often unique internal political, social and economic dynamics of unstable states.
La Falla Estatal Y La Globalización
Rojas,Diana Marcela;
Análisis Político , 2007,
Abstract: state failure, more than a simple "anomaly" in the international system, reveals a deep transformation of statehood under the influence of globalization process. the so called "failed", "collapsed" or "unviable states" correspond only to the most extreme cases of a spectrum in which the limits of statehood "normality" turn out to be difficult to define and the modern concept of state-nation shows its inadequacy regarding the changes in the contemporary state. therefore the need of a theory that comprises the model or models of statehood that would be in formation under this new global order.
Nation-building e seguran?a internacional: Um debate em constru??o
Gomes, Aureo de Toledo;
Contexto Internacional , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-85292009000200003
Abstract: this article aims to analyze nation-building operations, which have been considered, since september 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, one of the ways to cope with the new threats to international security, mainly the so-called failed states. therefore, we will review the bibliography published, trying to identity not only the origins of such operations but also the definitions used by the main authors and the problems that they might present.
