Blockchain for fragile States: Policy Brief the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Mar 06, 2018 | Clingendael Policy Brief, Willem van den Berg

As fragile states are often characterized by high transaction costs and low trust, many organisations are looking at the use of blockchain applications in these contexts. In this Clingendael Policy Brief, Willem van den Berg highlights three areas where aid and development organisations are experimenting with blockchain technology in fragile states: remittances and banking, supply chain transparency, and land registration. He discusses the topic with a conflict sensitive lens, and examines the technical and political challenges and risks in wider adoption.
