|Samenvatting||On Monday 14 November 2011, Stephen Ellis, Senior researcher at the African Studies Centre and Desmond Tutu professor in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the VU University Amsterdam, delivered the first lecture in the 2011-2012 SID lecture series on the role of the State. The state has traditionally been assigned a leading role in the development process. While views have changed over the decades regarding the relative merits of state intervention versus the private sector, the state remains the mainstay of international diplomatic relations and law. It is the building block of the international system. Yet of the United Nations’ 193 member-states, perhaps a quarter are widely regarded as 'fragile,, 'failed', 'failing' or described with similar terms. Many such states are in Africa.|
