The Summer School on Post-Conflict Stabilisation: the Day after IS Military Defeat will focus on the main challenges facing the post-Islamic State (IS) scenario. It aims to provide policy-makers, practitioners and academics with in-depth analyses on the most relevant factors affecting these areas and the broader region. Three case studies will be central to the programme: Syria, Iraq and Libya.
Fundamental questions surrounding post-IS defeat remain largely unanswered: How can sustainable pacification of the liberated areas be ensured? How can a local and national governance system conducive to long-term stabilisation be created? How can the impact of stabilisation and reconstruction aid be maximised? How can the IS military defeat’s influence on the jihadist sphere in the MENA region and in Europe be controlled?
