It is rising question of today that why some countries prosper and others fails? Deeply flawed political institution that are not in place by mistake but on purpose which mainly focuses on harvesting or extracting natural resources for sale or trade, and very little else, only benefiting elites class, striping their citizens of opportunity, destroying incentives and consequently making growth impossible. During the last half-decade, the Fund for Peace has been publishing failed states index that indicates how stable (or unstable) a country is. Many factors are taken into account while ranking fragile states Such as poor government, social and economic indicators that are exerting pressure on authorities and causing trouble to run public offices. The Failed States Index measures the pressures experienced by countries due to ongoing current issues and are considered at risk of failure. Political, social and economical sector are most focused in this report. Non-provision of public services; extensive corruption and criminality; refugees and rapid population’s growth and sharp economic decline are some key indicators that determine top ten failed countries. The report uses 12 factors to ascertain the ranking of all countries including security threats, economic implosion, human rights violations and refugee flows.
