Towards a realistic strategy to combat ISIS in Syria

In this Syria Alert, PAX sets out how an ‘ISIS-first strategy’ which addresses the symptom – ISIS – and leaves the cause – Assad – to be addressed later, will prove ineffective because it is counterproductive and unsustainable. PAX believes that a military strategy to combat ISIS is only realistic if it is part of a coherent policy to build an alternative inclusive governance arrangement based on a political process laid out in the Vienna declaration.
