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.
