U.S. Should Invest In, Support Conflict-Affected CAR
U.S. Global Leadership Coalition: An Ounce of Prevention in the Central African Republic
David Stein, policy associate at the USGLC, discusses the international community’s role in supporting fragile states like Central African Republic (CAR), writing, “It is in America’s interest to invest in long-term stability and resilience by helping CAR address the underlying causes of the conflict. Unfortunately, America’s funding of the International Affairs Budget — which addresses these challenges — has not kept pace. … This is shortsighted given the fragility of peace in weak states like CAR” (3/9).
