Monitoring Principles for Good International Engagement in Fragile States and Situations

The Principles for Good International Engagement in Fragile States and Situations – often referred to as the Fragile States Principles (FSPs) – provide a set of guidelines to improve involvement of the international community in situations of conflict and fragility.

They were approved in 2007 by ministers of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

The Fragile States Principles were originally drafted at the 2005 Senior Level Forum on Development Effectiveness in Fragile States.

These initial principles were tested in nine fragile states over 2005 to 2006 (Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea Bissau, Haiti, Nepal, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Zimbabwe) and revised.
