  1. The term FAILED STATE is often use by political commentators and journalists to describe a state perceived as having failed at some of the basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government. In order to make this definition more precise, the following attributes, proposed by the Fund for Peace, are often used to characterize a failed state:–

    1)- Loss of control of its territory, or of the monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force therein,

    2)- Erosion of legitimate authority to make collective decisions,

    3)- An inability to provide public services, and

    4)- An inability to interact with other states as a full member of the international community.
