Debate on strong states

Working with strong states: challenges, limitations, compromises...

What do we mean by “strong states”? Is the number of “strong states” increasing or is it MSF that has grown and changed to become less flexible to adapt to the circumstances? What limitations and conditions are we ready to accept in order to access the people we want to assist? How do we overcome the obstacles? What are the implications for our core identity and principles?
