State fragility is here defined as deficiencies in one or more of three core functions of the state. These functions include violence control, implementation capacity, and empirical legitimacy. Violence control refers to the state’s ability to manage the uses of violence within society. Implementation capacity refers to the state’s ability to provide basic public services. Empirical legitimacy refers to the population’s consent to the state’s claim to rule. Employing three to four indicators per dimension for 171 countries over the period 2005–2015 and finite mixture model clustering, we find six dominant constellations that represent different types of state dysfunctionality.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-07-09T13:57:01Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Kreibaum, Merle</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2019-06</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Grävingholt, Jörn</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Kreibaum, Merle</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-07-09T13:57:01Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
