Chapter 2: State fragility and intervention, new wars and protection wars

Timo Kivimäki


This chapter will operationalize the two main concepts that will be used for the assessment of success of protective operations and the identification of protection wars and new wars: state fragility and intervention. It produces an open dataset on interventions and state fragility that modifies Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) data and Systemic Peace project’s State Fragility Index so that the new data can serve as an analysis of the consequences of humanitarian intervention on state fragility and battle deaths.
