The Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations (CSO) advances the U.S. Department of State’s understanding of violent conflict through analysis and planning; monitoring, evaluation, and learning; and targeted, in-country efforts that help the U.S. government anticipate, prevent, and respond to conflict and promote long-term stability. CSO helps the State Department and U.S. embassies visualize and understand stabilization and civilian protection challenges and then mobilizes strategies and resources to address gaps in prevention and response efforts. Current priorities include atrocities prevention, countering violence extremism, stabilization, political and electoral violence, peace process support, militias and ceasefires.
