Finding it crucial to closely monitor weak states – their progress, their deterioration, and their ability to withstand challenges – the Fund for Peace, an independent research organization, and FOREIGN POLICY presented the fourth annual Failed States Index 2008. Using 12 social, economic, political, and military indicators, the institutes ranked 177 states in order of their vulnerability to violent internal conflict and societal deterioration.

 To do so, we examined more than 30,000 publicly available sources, collected from May to December 2007, to form the basis of the index’s scores. The list of 35 failed states is topped by Somali, while 15 states with Norway at the head form the zone of welfare and stability of state institutes. Among the post soviet republics Uzbekistan ranks 26, Tajikistan – 38, Kyrgyzstan – 39 and Turkmenistan – 46. Moldova, ranking 50 is the most unstable state in Europe. Belarus ranks 53, Georgia – 56, Azerbaijan – 64, Kazakhstan – 101, Ukraine – 108 and Armenia – 109. The list of stable states includes 34 states ranking from 128 to 162.
