Abstract: While the ‘inclusion consensus’ has been growing, new challenges to implementing it have been evolving with equal vigour. Negative trends in violent conflict have been reversing development gains, exacerbating suffering and fuelling displacement crises. Drivers of conflict have escalated and evolved, including fragmentation of military and political power, weak and corrupt governance and state institutions, climate shocks, rapid mutation of conflict causes and means of violence, geopolitical rifts that fuel a proliferation of weapons, and military interventions. Authoritarian governments have shrunk space for civil society mobilisation. International relations are in a state of strategic confusion, with little scope for agreement among global powers on ways to tackle instability – and how or even whether to uphold the rule of law.
