What Will It Take to Prevent a Security Decline in Mosul?

The military campaign against ISIS has pushed the group out of Mosul and recaptured large amounts of territory elsewhere in Iraq and Syria. After ISIS is defeated, what must be done to stabilize Mosul and Iraq and prevent a slide back into violence? What policies could Congress, the State Department, U.S. Agency for International Development, and Defense Department pursue in the wake of combat operations?

In this briefing, Shelly Culbertson and Linda Robinson discuss

  • the humanitarian and stabilization needs in Mosul and more broadly in Iraq
  • specific targeted actions to stabilize the region, such as addressing food, water and medical shortages, and ensuring adequate security forces in cleared areas
  • policies that Congress, the State Department, U.S. Agency for International Development, and the Defense Department could pursue in the wake of combat operations.
