International Security & Foreign Policy

A Counter-ISIS Strategy

Grant Year: 2016


Seth Jones and James Dobbins will lead an effort to develop a global strategy to defeat the Islamic State and its associated groups. They will conduct research and analysis and convene experts to examine the significance and nature of the threat posed by the Islamic State to the United States; the military, diplomatic, financial, and ideological instruments that the United States should deploy in a rollback strategy against the Islamic State; and how the United States should construct a phased campaign against the Islamic State and its affiliates in specific countries, specific regions, and globally. The project’s findings will appear in a monograph and related briefings.
