Borgen Magazine Examines Introduction Of Bipartisan Global Fragility Act Of 2019

Borgen Magazine: Global Fragility Act Introduced in Congress
“On March 7, the Global Fragility Act of 2019 was introduced by Reps. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), Michael McCaul (R-Texas), Adam Smith (D-Wash.), Ann Wagner (R-Mo.), Bill Keating (D-Mass.), and Francis Rooney (R-Fla.). The Global Fragility Act seeks to address the root causes of violence and fragility in order to stabilize conflict-affected areas. The bill calls for the establishment of the Global Fragility Initiative — to be created by the secretary of State, the administrator of USAID and the secretary of Defense — which will integrate ten-year plans to address fragility in priority countries and regions. Additionally, the bill would authorize the Complex Crises Fund to alleviate unforeseen conflicts when funding gaps occur in foreign countries…” (Gambero, 4/15).
