Contents Scenario 1: Prolonged Conflict -- Scenario 2: Regime "Victory" -- Scenario 3: Regime Collapse -- Scenario 4: Negotiated Settlement -- Workshop Overall Judgments -- Recent Developments -- How Could Another Future Emerge?
Summary This perspective draws on a December 2013 RAND workshop to assess four possible future scenarios for the conflict in Syria: prolonged conflict, regime victory, regime collapse, and negotiated settlement. The authors update and reassess these scenarios based on developments in Syria and Iraq in 2014 and explore the implications that each has for Syria, the region, and the United States
Notes "This perspective was drafted just before the United States commenced bombing against ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria and thus does not factor that development into our assessment of Syria's future trajectory"--Page 1
