Managing Across Boundaries Senior Associate Rachel Stohl was quoted in Executive magazine on chemical weapons in Syria.

Stohl observed, “as we learned in Iraq and Libya, it is very clear that when a country is in crisis or transition and loses control over a stockpile of weapons – be they conventional or chemical – there’s an inherent danger to the population. Loose weapons in a destabilized region leads to problems for the country involved and for its neighbors.” Moreover, she said, “holding any weapon inherently means power because you can threaten to use it.”
