|Date||December 5, 2012|
Stimson's Future of Peace Operations Program and CSIS's Americas Program and Program on Crisis, Conflict and Cooperation hosted the launch of a new book:
Exit Strategies and State Building
In the past two decades, states and multilateral organizations have devoted considerable resources toward efforts to stabilize peace and rebuild war-torn societies. Despite these efforts, there has been relatively little consideration of the critical questions arising from the "end game" of state-building operations. Exit Strategies and State Building focuses on relevant historical and contemporary cases of exit to provide a comprehensive overview of this crucial issue. By examining the major challenges associated with the conclusion of international state-building operations and the requirements for the maintenance of peace in the period following exit, this book provides unique perspective on a critical aspect of military and political intervention. Discussion built from the book's findings and included examples from Haiti, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
