By, With, and Through: How the U.S. Military Can Help Arab Militaries Get Better at Irregular Warfare

Grant Year: 2017


Ilan Goldenberg will explore whether the United States and its Arab state partners could develop a combined irregular and unconventional warfare capability to counter both Iran’s Quds Force and Sunni jihadist groups. He will research primary and secondary sources, undertake field work, and convene expert roundtable meetings to examine whether the United States should pursue the creation of a multinational joint task force with Arab partners to prevail in irregular wars across the Middle East. The project’s findings will appear in a report.
