Civil Wars, Violence, and International Responses

Grant Year: 2016


Karl Eikenberry and Stephen Krasner will lead an effort to examine how the United States can best shape the outcomes of civil wars in fragile states. They will commission a set of essays from experts and practitioners on the sources and consequences of internal conflicts in the developing world. They will identify shortcomings in current U.S. approaches to mitigating such instability and propose reforms in U.S. capabilities and policies. The project’s findings will appear in two special issues of Daedalus, a co-authored policy paper, and related articles and briefings.
