Stabilizing Raqqa: Connecting Current Operations to U.S. Policy Objectives

  • CSIS 1616 Rhode Island Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

CSIS is hosting a panel discussion on local Syrian and Coalition stabilization efforts in Raqqa featuring experts from USAID, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Defense, and CSIS. Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and Coalition forces drove ISIS from its self-proclaimed caliphate capital in Raqqa in 2017. Enduring security in ISIS-cleared areas now depends on local governance and restoration of services. Following a recent visit to Raqqa, Syria by Ambassador Mark Green, Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and General Joseph Votel, Commander of United States Central Command (USCENTCOM), panel speakers will discuss the importance of stabilization efforts in Raqqa and the challenges of connecting current operations with U.S. policy objectives.
