Today the world faces a volatile convergence of instability, state weakness, and conflict. These conditions are complicating the ability of the United States to operate and pursue security objectives in a number of critical regions. The United States needs to be able to work within the constraints of fragile environments, to implement approaches that address pressing security threats and objectives and meet relatively urgent security or humanitarian needs. A new report by the International Security Program at CSIS, "Meeting Security Challenges in a Disordered World," explores how the United States can best meet security challenges in the midst of increasing state fragmentation and fragility around the globe.
CSIS is hosting a report launch featuring panel discussions on navigating instability and fragility, the challenges and pragmatic options to meet a range of security imperatives, and a deep-dive on the conflict in Syria.
