    Changing the Game: Human Security as a Grand Strategy

    Changing the Game: Human Security as a Grand Strategy Lieutenant Colonel John C Anderson PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "Dire forecasts of “game-changing” political, social and environmental upheaval over the next thirty years only add to the pessimism generated by constraining fiscal environments and tangible signs, the world over, of a rising China. These same pressures lend urgency to initiatives that seek greater organizational efficiency in the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of State (DOS)."

    Preventing and Managing Conflict in an Unstable World

    Preventing and Managing Conflict in an Unstable World Paul Sangrey, Karen Finkenbinder, PKSOI Interns: Jeremy Wallace, Sarah Cassel, Nasim Fekrat, Sarah Masciola, James Pagano, Danielle Humphrey, Charles Williams Glaser, Paul Sangrey, Rachel Baras, Michael Fishman, Benjamin Brandt, Zachary Ricchuiti, Michael Bruno, Jason Kring PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "The genesis for this anthology occurred almost two years ago. As the internship program grew, we realized that many of their projects were too good to be used only by us. We thought their ideas deserved a forum where others might also benefit from their observations. This anthology is not exhaustive. In fact, there were many more papers we would have liked to include but, alas, we had to make the cut somewhere. These papers were written between 2010 and 2012."

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Overcoming "Challenges & Spoilers" with "Unity & Resolve" Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Overcoming “challenges and spoilers” within conflict-affected nations is a demanding endeavor. Stability operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Philippines, and multiple nations of Africa have shown that bringing lasting peace/stability to troubled nations – plagued by warlords, extremists, and paramilitaries – is never easy. These have proven to be highly complex operations requiring an extensive understanding of the environment, an extensive understanding of the “challenges and spoilers” within the environment, and an extensive understanding of their connections to 3rd party nations/states/actors."

    Avoiding Praetorian Societies: Focusing U.S. Strategy on Political Development

    Avoiding Praetorian Societies: Focusing U.S. Strategy on Political Development Lieutenant Colonel Bruce K Ferrell PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "It is clear that fragile nation-states will continue to be a major contributor to instability in the international strategic environment. The United States, its allies and partners have attempted to mitigate the negative effects of fragile states through a variety of approaches, including military stability and reconstruction (S&R) operations such as those undertaken in Iraq and Afghanistan. America’s success rate at conducting S&R operations, however, is mixed. Despite immense efforts undertaken in Iraq and Afghanistan, the creation of politically stable states in both countries eludes the U.S., partner states, and international allies."

    JP 3-29 Foreign Humanitarian Assistance

    JP 3-29 Foreign Humanitarian Assistance Joint and Army Stability Operations Doctrine by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, Department of the Navy "This publication has been prepared under the direction of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS). It sets forth joint doctrine to govern the activities and performance of the Armed Forces of the United States in joint operations and provides the doctrinal basis for interagency coordination and for US military involvement in multinational operations. It provides military guidance for the exercise of authority by combatant commanders and other joint force commanders (JFCs) and prescribes joint doctrine for operations, education, and training. It provides military guidance for use by the Armed Forces in preparing their appropriate plans. It is not the intent of this publication to restrict the authority of the JFC from organizing the force and executing the mission in a manner the JFC deems most appropriate to ensure unity of effort in the accomplishment of the overall objective."

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Improving Host Nation Security through Police Forces

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Improving Host Nation Security through Police Forces Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "A safe and secure environment requires, as a minimum, the physical security of civilians, public figures/forums, critical infrastructure, government facilities, and cultural/historical sites. Protecting people/events/facilities, establishing law and order, and maintaining law and order are vital functions for keeping the peace/ stabilization process moving forward and for allowing expansion of service deliveries and market activities. Police forces are essential players for handling these functions."

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Key Enablers for Peacekeeping & Stability Operations

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Key Enablers for Peacekeeping & Stability Operations Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "In the course of recent / ongoing operations in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Kenya, Liberia, Libya, and Sierra Leone, a number of key “enablers” have significantly contributed to mission accomplishment. In most cases, these “enablers” were developed / instituted to address a specific need or shortfall, and they rather quickly made a positive operational impact for the forces involved. Granted, no two operations are ever alike, however, the key “enablers” covered in this report are nonetheless offered as “food for thought” for planners and practitioners of future peacekeeping and stability operations."

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Strategic Lessons In Peacekeeping and Stability Operations - VOL2 Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Strategic messaging by intervening forces during stability operations is fundamental for their overall success. Peacekeepers/stability operations personnel must use strategic messaging to inform host nation (HN) civilians and the HN government about their intentions/objectives and the improvements being made. Ultimately, this will help intervening forces improve relations, extend reach, and build public support for the HN government."

    Social Capital, Policing and the Rule of Law: Keys to Stabilization

    Social Capital, Policing and the Rule of Law: Keys to Stabilization Doctor Karen J. Finkenbinder, Paul Michael Sangrey, M. Annette Evans, Colonel Kevin S. MacWatters, Colonel David M. Krall, Colonel Robert K. Byrd, Colonel David L. Ward, Colonel Robert A. Karmazin, Colonel Jesse D. Galvan, Colonel Robert Dillon, Colonel Bradley W. Graul, Colonel John M. McGrath PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Social Capital, Policing and Rule-of-Law: Keys to Stabilization reflects a breadth of U.S. Army War College Strategy Research papers in which students tackled tough issues. The danger in compiling student papers is that an anthology can become a set of isolated, disconnected, anecdotal experiences. We have tried to select those that best describe the essentials of stability tasks and activities and the role they play in our success, failure, or combination thereof, in current and future operations."

    Fostering a Police Reform Paradigm

    Fostering a Police Reform Paradigm Doctor Karen J. Finkenbinder, Colonel Robert E Lowe, Doctor Raymond A Millen PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Of all the myriad of lessons learned in recent conflicts, the importance of police forces, to counter insurgencies and maintain security, is well-recognized. The police may be civilian, military or combination of types of police. Numerous articles, studies, and books have been published about all aspects of police reform but this monograph takes a different approach. It combines the theoretical with the applied and provides practical and historical applications of police reform."

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Leadership in Stability Operations: Understanding / Engaging the People

    SOLLIMS Sampler - Leadership in Stability Operations: Understanding / Engaging the People Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute " 'Understanding / engaging the people' is a vital component of leadership during stability operations. Cultural understanding facilitates informed decision-making. It provides a key baseline of knowledge / awareness for U.S. and international leaders (civilian and military) to successfully operate in the environment of the host nation. Identifying societal groups and networks, and then communicating with, negotiating with, influencing, advising, mentoring, etc. the various groups and their leaders are common – if not essential – engagement activities for U.S. and international leaders during the course of stability operations."

    A Reference Guide for Interpreting Statistics and Creating Survey Questions Hai Do, Doctor Karen J. Finkenbinder PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "The guide is designed for one that is not enamored with statistics but needs to know enough to accurately interpret an academic article or other statistical information. Further, it includes a brief “how to” section on designing survey questions. For some, this information will be just a review; for others, it will be new information. Regardless of which camp you are in, we hope you find it useful."
