We are honored to welcome Secretary Benn, who will discuss the UK government’s ongoing process to define a coherent whole-of-government strategy for weak and fragile states. He will outline the common agenda that the UK and US share with respect to these states in the developing world. Francis Fukuyama and Sebastian Mallaby, two distinguished analysts of these issues in the American context, will offer their thoughts on US strategy and multilateral efforts in this area.
