Immanent conflict, without imminent war: Local actors and foreign power are scrabbling for influence in Iraq and Syria

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportForskning

The direct, violent confrontations between the US and Iran are over for now, but conflicts in Iraq and Syria are far from resolved. The fragmented nature of the Iraqi and Syrian states and the presence of multiple militias backed by foreign actors mean that conflicts can easily escalate. The current turmoil and potential power vacuum may also provide fertile ground for the Islamic State (IS) to return.
