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.
Please join the Atlantic Council on Thursday, October 15 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. for a public event that will present the findings of the simulation before a broader discussion of the strategic challenges facing the United States and its partners in the fight against ISIS.
Light lunch will be served.
