OEF’s research department has released a working paper version of a report with Alliance for Peacebuilding on the implementation of the Global Fragility Act.
The Global Fragility Act is a recently-passed bill that is intended to restructure how the US government approaches peacebuilding and the prevention of armed conflict. It directs the primary US entities working on these questions - the Departments of Defense and State, and USAID - to work together to develop a coordinated strategy and identify specific countries and regions to prioritize.
Effective implementation of the GFA will advance peace and security internationally, but it will also require new approaches and new ways of operating. This report, produced in partnership with the Alliance for Peacebuilding, distills lessons-learned from empirical research and consultations with stakeholders into specific recommendations for how to improve implementation of the GFA.
The report is currently released in a working paper format to solicit feedback from interested parties.
