State-owned enterprises (SOEs) affect stability in conflict-prone environments, and decisive control of them creates positive or negative conditions. The importance of SOEs and their treatment in five post-conflict environments areas are described. In areas of the world in which security forces stepped in and took control, their actions helped stabilize the
government. In contrast, when security forces failed to act decisively, the fragile government remained or was further destabilized. As often happens in complex environments, it is a challenge to know how and when to use SOEs, and a good set of
metrics is necessary to measure their effectiveness. The author proposes that associated with the analytical tool known as “Measuring Progress in Conflict Environments” are objectives that directly relate to production, or the output of economic resources. Other objectives relate to policy frameworks that directly affect production.
