Lessons from Operation Inherent Resolve: From Ensuring the Enduring Defeat of ISIS to Stabilising the Region

07 April 2021, 14:00
This event will look at experience from Operation Inherent Resolve in countering ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and its future as part of a broader civilian-led strategy to bring greater stability to the region.
The Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve was established in 2014, with the mission of defeating ISIS in designated areas of Iraq and Syria and setting conditions for follow-on operations to increase regional stability.

But its military actions are only one part of a wider Global Coalition strategy that aims to bring the full weight of diplomatic, economic, informational and other instruments together, with the objective of defeating the ideology as well as the military might of ISIS.

What was the experience from Operation Inherent Resolve in countering ISIS in Iraq and Syria? How has it worked with the wider 83-member Global Coalition? And what is its future direction for strategy and operations in ensuring greater stability in the region? These are some of the questions addressed in this webinar.

The panellists are:
  • David Schlaefer, Acting Deputy Special Envoy for the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS
  • Major General Kevin Copsey, Deputy Commander - Strategy, Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve
The event will be moderated by Dr Karin von Hippel, Director-General of RUSI.
To take part you must pre-register no later than 6 April.
