Across Asia, unstable governments and extremist violence undermine peace and security. Through longstanding engagement in the region, the U.S. Institute of Peace works on the ground on a range of initiatives such as support for strengthening the rule of law in Afghanistan or mediation training to promote a more inclusive peace process in Burma. Most recently, USIP expanded its work to include research, dialogue and training on China’s role in countries that are fragile or affected by conflict.
The congressionally mandated Afghanistan Study Group
has been charged with identifying policy recommendations that “consider the implications of a peace settlement, or the failure to reach a settlement, on U.S. policy, resources, and commitments in Afghanistan.”
