This manual is designed to meet that need."

These principles have proven their worth across the range of peace and stability operations and across diverse operational environments, whether in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Horn of Africa, the Sahel, Southeast Asia, or Central America – as evidenced in countless lessons learned in the SOLLIMS database. What follows is a representative sample of lessons learned – highlighting key elements of each of the seven cross-cutting principles: Host Nation Ownership and Capacity, Political Primacy, Legitimacy, Unity of Effort, Security, Conflict Transformation, and Regional Engagement."

    Religion: A Missing Component of Professional Military Education

    Religion: A Missing Component of Professional Military Education Doctor Thomas G Matyok PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "There is little reason to romanticize religion and the potential roles it can play in peacebuilding. The historic record is clear. Religion has often been animated to justify the worst kinds of horrors. In the United States alone, Jim Crow preachers employed religious rhetoric to keep segregation in place. Osama Bin Laden used religion to justify mass murder, and preachers such as Jerry Falwell routinely suggested the link between terrorism waged against Americans and God’s wrath for a society wandering away from Christian values."

    Professionalizing Ministerial Advising Doctor Raymond A Millen PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "In this study, Professor Raymond Millen has identified a persistent challenge in U.S. efforts to provide effective security cooperation and capacity building with fragile and failing states—the realm of ministerial advising. From his research and analysis, he has concluded the United States has an opportunity to close the gap between U.S. good intentions and outcomes by recommending the establishment of a professional ministerial corps."
