Panel Discussion: Foreign Policy and Fragile States

By Ilan Goldenberg

Seven years into a brutal civil war in Syria, we are reminded how fragile states can lead to regional instability, cause humanitarian crises and fall prey to extremist organizations, such as ISIS. Ilan Goldenberg, Senior Fellow and Director of CNAS' Middle East Security Program, joined other leading experts at the United States Institute of Peace to discuss how the United States and the international community can address these national security challenges. Panel speakers include: Joshua Johnson (NPR), Nancy Lindborg (U.S. Institute of Peace), and Kimberly Kagan (The Institute for the Study of War).
