Experts identify more than 50 nations as in a state of fragility or conflict today. The countries suffer from weak infrastructure, internal conflict and economic despair, often severely impacting the security and well-being of their local populations - with global consequences. While efforts are being made to stabilize these nations, panelists will examine whether peace finally has a chance to flourish?

The panel proposes an in-depth look at these fragile nations, the peace building efforts to stabilize them and their impact on Minnesota communities.
