Abstract:

"Many contemporary insurgencies are characterized by militant groups that span national boundaries, benefiting from sanctuaries in neighboring states. Such groups complicate traditional counterinsurgency operations and have the potential to spark conflict between states. While some countries have engaged in cooperative strategies to contain transnational violence, many neighbors have been drawn into prolonged conflict over the issue of foreign sanctuaries. In this monograph, Dr. Idean Salehyan examines several recent transnational insurgencies and their implications for regional relations. While the majority of cases resulted in an escalation of conflict between neighbors, in some instances countries have been able to construct successful border security regimes. This monograph discusses these patterns of conflict and cooperation. Additionally, detailed analyses of the relations between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as India and its neighbors, are offered to shed light on positive and negative dynamics. Importantly, Dr. Salehyan uses past cases of conflict and cooperation over transnational militancy to underscore the current issues facing Iraq and Afghanistan. Looking ahead to the eventual reduction of foreign troops in these countries, this monograph assesses prospects for regional stability and offers concrete policy advice for decisionmakers."--Foreword, p. iii.
