    What is the role of urbanization in shaping trajectories of violence? Decisions are made based on consultation among the member countries. Drawing on relevant literature and fieldwork in five countries, it suggests that fragility, violent conflict, and state failure are functions not only of state inability or unwillingness to perform core tasks, but also of dysfunctional relationships in society that do not permit a state to be formed or sustained. Cambridge: Polity Press. Many are deploying conventional tactics. In urban contexts where violence is a significant factor, humanitarian interventions will need to learn from and work with others focused on conflict prevention, violence prevention and reduction, and peacebuilding.

    It will be up to humanitarian actors to translate their own latent awareness and experience into good practice. Advocacy is practiced through a combination of research publications, public position statements and regular formal and informal dialogue with key international development partners through the IDPS and other fora. Among Afghans, frustration levels ran high on the billions of dollars spent, which little results to show for it. The team began with an extensive consultation phase to identify some key societal dynamics that seemed important in understanding fragility. It emphasizes the need for a learning infrastructure for synthesizing different sources of learning that can feed into a process of continuous adaptation and fine-tuning.

The aid architecture itself is still oriented toward more conventional engagement through centralized state systems and in rural areas, a fact that may slow down and even impede more comprehensive engagement. The present chapter has introduced the problem of fragility and suggested that seeing fragility as a problem of relationships in society can lead to more effective interventions in fragile situations.

There is much that can be gleaned from better analyzing and learning from the formal and informal systems operating in settings characterized by chronic urban violence. London: Verso; and Graham, S. Until recently, most discussions of urbanization and humanitarian action focused less on engaging humanitarian and development in the city per se, and more on treating the underlying risks associated with urbanization to begin with.
