The Road Ahead: The Future of the Coalition’s Anti-ISIS Strategy
By Brent Scowcroft Center
The Atlantic Council's Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security recently held a high-level war game to explore future courses of action that the US-led coalition could pursue against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, including staying the course, implementing a diplomatic surge, and carrying out a heavy military intervention. Participants explored these options with the aim of informing key domestic and regional stakeholders on the critical components of a successful coalition strategy.
The Atlantic Council hosted a public event on Thursday, October 15 at which these findings were presented before a broader discussion of the strategic challenges facing the United States and its partners in the fight against ISIS.
