The Fund for Peace has just released its 2016 Fragile States Index. East Africa and the Horn of Africa again scored poorly. Six of the ten most fragile states are in Africa and three (Somalia, South Sudan, and Sudan) are in the top five. But the rest of the region did not do a lot better. Eritrea was number 18, Kenya was number 20, and Ethiopia was number 24. Djibouti did somewhat better at number 39 and Tanzania did considerably better at number 62.
