Abstract: 

On December 19, 2019, the United States Congress adopted the historic bipartisan Global Fragility Act (GFA), as part of the 2020 Consolidated Appropriations Act.  The GFA established the first-ever U.S. government strategy to tackle alarming levels of global violence around the world. The violence is causing unimaginable suffering and instability, with almost 70 million people around the world trying to flee the violence.
