Areas of limited statehood where states lack the capacity to uphold the monopoly on violence and to enforce the law are not ungoverned spaces. Rather, a variety of actors maintain public order and safety, and provide public goods and services, such as health care and education. While external state 'governors' and their interventions in the global South have received special scholarly attention, various non-state actors also engage in governance. This evidence holds for diverse policy fields and historical cases. The Handbook gives a comprehensive picture of the varieties of governance in areas of limited statehood from interdisciplinary perspectives including political science, geography, history, law, and economics. 29 chapters review the academic scholarship and explore the conditions of effective and legitimate governance in areas of limited statehood, as well as its implications on world politics in the twenty-first century.
