Summary Multilateral political missions -- teams of civilian experts deployed by international and regional organizations -- play an overlooked role in preventing conflicts in fragile states. Using examples ranging from the Baltic states to West Africa and Central Asia, this report explores these missions' advantages and limitations. It argues that the United States and other powers can and should do more to help the United Nations and other organizations launch these civilian operations in the future.
