In its eighth annual Report on Failed States, the result of its cooperation with the Fund for Peace, US Foreign Policy and International Relations journal believes that in North Africa, Tunisia is far more stable than Morocco.
Indeed, the report ranks Tunisia in the 94th spot while Morocco, which according to Foreign Policy, has shown that there is a third way for Democratic Change in the Arab world, is ranked 87th.
Libya is ranked 50th while Egypt ranks 30th in the report and Mauritania, 38th.
According to the report, six African states are seen in a failed state: Somalia, Sudan, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zimbabwe and the Central African Republic.
The report has set this ranking based on a series of parameters, namely the loss of control over one’s territory, the erosion of legitimate authority to make collective decisions, the inability to provide public services and the inability to interact with the international community.
