Iraqi government forces and their U.S.-led coalition partners have logged significant military victories in recent months against the Islamic State, or ISIS, from recapturing Ramadi in February to wresting control of Fallujah last month. Preparations are underway for a far larger operation in Mosul, the country’s second-largest city, which ISIS seized as it swept across northern Iraq in 2014. But military triumphs are unlikely to lead to an enduring peace without an essential component that isn’t as impossible as it sounds: reconciliation.

Amid three major terrorist attacks on Tunisia in 14 months, the United States in 2016 has tripled its military and security aid to the country. But it is essential to complement security aid with consistent, patient and smart help that supports Tunisian reformers — both in the government and civil society — who are working to build the political, social and economic inclusiveness that is the only basis for long-term stability.

Last week, as I flew into Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic (CAR), what first appeared as a densely populated city came into sharp focus as a sprawling, miserable settlement of tarps, sticks, and rags.

Last week, along with Acting Assistant Secretary Don Yamamoto, I attended a conference in Brussels where 80 nations came together to pledge support for Mali as it seeks a pathway back to democracy, peace and prosperity. President Traore of Mali began the meeting by thanking the international community for its help and expressing his gratitude for the fact that, in the north of Mali, people are no longer having their hands and feet cut off by terrorists, women are no longer being raped, and Islam is no longer being defamed as a tool of terrorists. In his speech, he emphasized that, "we must learn our lessons from bad governance and realize that the collapse of this house of cards endangered our people as well as the entire region." He commended all of us "to address the root causes of this crisis, with good governance as the first priority."
