Burke Chair on Iraq War
The CSIS Arleigh A. Burke Chair holder Anthony H. Cordesman, seeks to analyze the multitude of elements affecting the progress and setbacks of the U.S. and Coalition effort to create and stable Iraq. Dr. Cordesman looks closely at Coalition military operations, as well as the various civilian, multinational, and other U.S. intuitions operating in Iraq. Likewise, the Iraq War project includes efforts dedicated to the Iraqi political process, the insurgency, and Iraqi Security Force Development.
Anthony H. Cordesman publishes frequent reports on the reconstruction effort, Iraqi governmental development, and the various facets of the aid effort. Analyses include indigenous actors and efforts within Iraq, as well as the roles played by governments and individual actors in the region -- and beyond -- in the effort to shape the future of Iraq.
In addition to several published books that can be purchased online from the CSIS Press, the project focuses on the steady development of working documents that are revised on an ongoing basis. As a result, all of the material provided in this section should be regarded as working material that is subject to update.
