Legal and policy planning experts talked about the future of political stability and security in the Middle East as the U.S. and its allies combated ISIS* militants. They focused on the political, security and humanitarian reasons ISIS was thriving and expanding, the threat posed by ISIS, the rise of extremists, and the return to authoritarian rule following the March 2011 “Arab Spring.”

“The Islamic State, Iraq, and the Levant: Support and Nation-Buildling in Weak States” was the first panel of the all-day Carnegie Endowment for International Peace conference “The Islamic State and the Middle East’s Shifting Geopolitical Landscape.”

*The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State. close
