    United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Maritime Manual

    United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Maritime Manual United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Manual by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, United Nations This Manual describes the United Nations (UN) Maritime Task Force, focusing on maritime support to a UN Mission and Force Headquarters. Always scalable in size, modular in function and Mission-tailored, the UN Maritime Task Force’s size and composition depend on the size, composition and requirements of the UN Mission it supports and the physical characteristics of the Mission area. In UN Maritime Task Force operations, a common understanding of terms, standards and procedures is crucial to Mission success. Many maritime nations are already generally familiar with internationally accepted standards and procedures, but may not be familiar with the more specific requirements to operate with one another as part of a UN Maritime Task Force. This manual is designed to meet that need."

    SOLLIMS Sampler – Cross-Cutting Guidelines for Stability Operations (July 2015) Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "The seven cross-cutting principles for stability operations are applicable at the individual, organizational, and systemic levels and are pertinent throughout planning, conduct, assessment, and transitions. 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."

    Peace & Stability Journal, Volume 5, Issue 3 Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "South Asia is one of the poorest and most conflict prone nations in the world. Most South Asian countries have suffered from poor governance, lack of rule of law, corruption, lack of accountability, and human rights violations. In addition, the region of South Asia as a whole has yet to fully engage itself with issues pertaining to security sector reform. The broader notion of a full-fledged security agenda has not become an integral element of the ongoing security discourse, which remains essentially state-centric..."
