"Complexity Theory Applied to UN Statebuilding in the DRC and South Sudan"
This is a very interesting discussion. The book critiques the UN's traditional approach of 'state-building', i.e. treating what it deems 'failed states' as simple machines where you can simply remove the bad part and replace it with a good part and all will be well. The author proposes treating them as complex systems, and ultimately as sites of self-governance, not world-building exercises from the outside.
There is no such thing as an ungoverned space. Where there are people, there is governance. It just may not be in a form that appeals to the sensibilities of Western liberals.
~00:04:15 Gives a nice succinct description of complicated vs complex systems.
Pursuing a complexity-driven approach instead helps to avoid unintentional consequences, identifies meaningful points of leverage, and opens the possibility of transforming societies from within.
