    United Nations Special Forces Manual

    United Nations Special Forces Manual United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Manual by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, United Nations "For several decades, United Nations peacekeeping has evolved significantly in its complexity. The spectrum of multi-dimensional UN peacekeeping includes challenging tasks such as helping to restore state authority, protecting civilians and disarming, demobilizing and reintegrating ex-combatants. In today’s context, peacekeeping missions are deploying into environments where they can expect to confront asymmetric threats from armed groups over large swaths of territory. Consequently, the capabilities required for successful peacekeeping missions demand ever-greater improvement."

    Peace & Stability Journal, Volume 5, Issue 2 Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "The following paper is an excerpt from a JPME paper on the topic of building defense training and education institutions in Africa. It relies heavily on the 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) published on February 1, 2010 for research, guidance, and conclusions. The 2014 QDR was approved and signed by the Secretary of Defense on March 4, 2014. Therefore, the publication of the new 2014 QDR requires several additional comments in order to highlight the new defense guidance on Africa contained within the document."

    Sustainable Transportation: Strategy for Security, Prosperity and Peace

    Sustainable Transportation: Strategy for Security, Prosperity and Peace Colonel Blace C Albert, LTC James P Allen PKSOI Paper US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "In this article LTC Allen and COL Albert identify how a strategic transportation vision and the discipline to build and maintain that network over several decades can start and enhance the growth of a country. Transportation is the backbone to a stable economy and it provides efficiencies that can help a struggling economy reverse its decline and prosper over the long term. The other points in the work also emphasize that a transportation system must be continually evaluated to ensure that it remains robust and maintained."

    United Nations Force Headquarters Handbook

    United Nations Force Headquarters Handbook United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Manual by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, United Nations "Peacekeeping operations have traditionally been considered as instrumental in consolidating confidence among conflicting parties and monitoring the effective respect of the ceasefire by those who signed it. To that end peacekeepers were usually armed only with light weapons to be used solely for self-defence in the case that they were attacked. These missions were authorized under Chapter VI of the United Nations Charter. From the 1990s to the early 2000 peacekeeping operations have been deployed in countries where security remained a critical issue. As these traditional peacekeeping operations were repeatedly confronted with major human rights violations without having the means to stop them a new generation of operations, the so called robust peacekeeping operations were launched..."

    Peace & Stability Journal, Volume 5, Issue 1 Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Some scholars warn that the 2010-12 Coalition “surge” in Afghanistan fell well short of the positive, albeit short-term results of the 2007-08 surge in Iraq. Since the Taliban threat remains high, its capabilities lethal, and its ideology resilient, the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF – including both the Army and Police) continue to face a major challenge in countering this insurgency while protecting the civilian population, particularly in the south and east of Afghanistan."

    Rethinking Victory in Counterinsurgency

    Rethinking Victory in Counterinsurgency COL Michael C Griffen PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "As a general rule, Americans are averse to war and are easily frustrated with wars of limited objectives. As such, Americans have a cultural aversion to counterinsurgency (COIN) – which is ironic given our success using asymmetric tactics against the British in the Revolutionary War. Moreover, Americans have grown to expect total victory in the form of unconditional surrender as the termination of any conflict. We consider anything less as a loss or stalemate."

    Tackling Africa's First Narco-State: Guinea-Bissau in West Africa Colonel Stephen K Van Riper PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "The United Nations coined the term ‘transnational crime’ in the 1970s to call attention to criminal acts which transcended national jurisdictions, such as money laundering, terrorist activities, illicit arms trafficking, illicit drug trafficking, trafficking in persons, and corruption. These types of activities inherently undermine progress in the peace and stability operations environment and deter foreign assistance in affected areas."

    USAID & DoD: Analysis and Recommendations to Enhance Development-Military Cooperation Mister Benjamin D Kauffeld PKSOI Paper by US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "At the beginning of 2014, U.S. government agencies involved in national security, including the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), maintained a laser like focus on an imploding Syria, the impending transition in Afghanistan and the arc of instability spreading across Western Africa. Not on the radar screen was the horror movie unfolding in Ukraine or the explosion of unaccompanied children fleeing instability in Central America. As General Key, European Command’s (EUCOM) planning chief, remarked at the late winter EUCOM Strategy Conference, 'Our crystal ball is not so crystal.' "

Leveraging the collective capabilities of all elements of national power towards the accomplishment of over-arching political objectives is, therefore, critical to the rapid cessation of hostilities and the subsequent winning of the peace..."
