Summary:
International missions want to hand back responsibility for local security to local government as quickly as possible, but weak and recovering states need something other than the international dole to pay for these and other critical governmental functions. The most easily revivable and collectible tax is on tangible imports and exports at points of entry and exit (airports, seaports, and border crossings). Effective border security also helps stem illicit flows of gems, drugs, and light weapons, and helps to fight human trafficking networks. Thus, to help accelerate the development of a legitimate local government, international support for public security in recovering failed states must extend to state borders, help the government collect export and import taxes, and promote the development of border security forces and a customs service. In Post-Conflict Borders and UN Peace Operations, FOPO examines training and assistance programs that aim to improve border and trade control efforts in recovering failed states, and in particular the potential for new technologies to facilitate the efforts of transitional international operations.
