Rethinking Civilian Stabilization and Reconstruction
- Tuesday, Jul 16, 2013
Syria and Mali are not the first foreign conflicts the United States has tried to avoid intervening in militarily. Nor will they be the last. Despite common beliefs, U.S. leaders rarely use military power to respond to foreign crises. When they do, it's only after exhausting civilian options.
Do U.S. civilian institutions have the right mix of support, funding, and capabilities to respond to major crises and political transitions? Can the United States protect its interests and prevent conflicts without using its military?
On July 16, 2013, CSIS, with IRD and AECOM, will host a distinguished group of U.S. experts and foreign recipients of U.S. assistance to take a deep look at where the United States stands in its civilian capacity for reconstruction and stabilization. What does it do well? What needs improvement? Where is more support for civilian capabilities needed?
