Strauss Center Distinguished Scholar Dr. Alan Kuperman published an article in the most recent issue of International Security, discussing the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya. Contrary to the popular narrative that the intervention was a great success and a model for future campaigns, Kuperman argues that the NATO mission in fact led to many negative consequences: it extended the duration of the war, increased the death toll, encouraged radicalism, and increased weapons proliferation in the area, to name a few. For a more detailed account of his argument, visit International Security's website. Kuperman's article has attracted attention from other foreign policy focused news outlets, including Foreign Policy.

The reseach in this article was expanded upon and published by the Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs in a policy brief titled, "Lessons from Libya: How Not to Intervene."
