The Beginner's Guide to Nation-Building

Nation building is a difficult process, and creating a suitable template that could be used in a host of different regions around the world seems practically impossible. A team of three scholars at the RAND Corporation has recently completed their 330-page scholarly exploration into this complex subject. Drawing on experiences from 16 US- and UN-led nation-building operations since World War II, the report deals with the various constituent elements of any nation-building mission, including the rule of law, governance, and economic stabilization, among others. Visitors also have the opportunity to watch an interview with one of the report's authors, James Dobbins, and if pressed for time, they can also look at a research brief which summarizes recommendations from the complete report.
