Failing neighbours

In the midst of failure

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Look at this year’s Failed State Index published by the Fund for Peace (via Rezwan). First, name the country which has the most number of failing states as its neighbours. Second, name the country all whose neighbours are considered to be furthest along the road to state failure?

Clearly, it is not at all a good thing for a country to be surrounded by failure. Moreover, it points to the country’s failure to do its part to maintain stability.
