    Cyberspace: Malevolent Actors, Criminal Opportunities, and Strategic Competition

    Cyberspace: Malevolent Actors, Criminal Opportunities, and Strategic Competition Dr Dighton Fiddner, Dr Phil Williams Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The following chapters raise major and enduring questions about the conceptual and analytic challenges posed by the unique nature of cyberspace; differences between cyberthreats and more traditional challenges to national security; the range of possible responses to cyberthreats, ranging from the development of codes of conduct in cyberspace to strategies of deterrence and denial, and even the development of offensive cyberwar capabilities; and the relevance of traditional concepts such as crisis management and escalation to potential confrontations in cyberspace."

These sectors “apply to every actor and activity across all end states.” These activities are outcome-focused; they serve as overarching themes that should guide all actions/efforts toward desired stability outcomes."

    The Pivot to Asia: Can it Serve as the Foundation for American Grand Strategy in the 21st Century

    The Pivot to Asia: Can it Serve as the Foundation for American Grand Strategy in the 21st Century Dr Douglas Stuart Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Establishing priorities is the indispensable core of strategy formulation. The Obama Administration’s decision to accord top priority to the Indo-Asia-Pacific (IAP) region made good strategic sense both in terms of the opportunities presented by the region’s unprecedented economic growth and the risks associated with the rapidly changing security environment in the IAP."

    Investigating the Benefits and Drawbacks of Realigning the National Guard Under the Department of Homeland Security

    Investigating the Benefits and Drawbacks of Realigning the National Guard Under the Department of Homeland Security Dr Ryan Burke, Dr Sue McNeil Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) designates homeland defense (HD) as one of the three core pillars of the nation’s current and future defense strategy. Defending the homeland from external threats and aggression requires a robust military capability. In this sense, both the federal Armed Forces (active and reserve components), as well as state National Guard forces play important roles in the defense of the nation. Further, HD often overlaps with civil support (CS) and homeland security to form a triad of domestic military operational domains. Where the roles, responsibilities, and limitations of the active and reserve components of the Armed Forces are relatively clear in this triad, the National Guard is a unique military entity capable of serving in either a state-controlled or federally controlled status during domestic operations."

    Stability Operations in Somalia 1992-1993: A Case Study

    Stability Operations in Somalia 1992-1993: A Case Study Glen M Harned PKSOI Paper US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "Operation RESTORE HOPE, a U.S.-led peace enforcement operation conducted in Somalia under United Nations (U.N.) auspices from December 1992 to May 1993, offers many lessons that are applicable to a range of possible challenges in the future. Unlike peacekeeping operations, which rely on the consent and good will of the parties to a dispute, peace enforcement operations involve the show or use of military force in an armed conflict to separate combatants and create, maintain, or reinstate a cease-fire."

    Taking the Fight to the Enemy: Chinese Thinking about Long-Distance and Expeditionary Operations

    Taking the Fight to the Enemy: Chinese Thinking about Long-Distance and Expeditionary Operations Dr Larry M Wortzel Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "This Letort Paper analyzes Long-Distance Operations, a Chinese-language book published by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Academy of Military Sciences (AMS) in 2007, as well as several other contemporaneous PLA publications. An assessment of this body of literature shows that Long-Distance Operations provides an internal critique by a PLA strategist of PLA operational and equipment deficiencies."

    2016-17 Key Strategic Issues List

    2016-17 Key Strategic Issues List Professor John F. Troxell Document by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and radical violent extremist organizations that currently challenge the U.S will likely continue to do so for some time. These security challenges exist within a wider global context of rapid technological change, significant demographic shifts, an uncertain economy, and geostrategic power dynamics of historic proportions. These conditions intensify the level of uncertainty and the pace of change, and raise the potential for significant interstate conflict to higher levels than at any time since the end of the Cold War."

    NATO Cyberspace Capability: A Strategic and Operational Evolution

    NATO Cyberspace Capability: A Strategic and Operational Evolution Mr Jeffrey L Caton Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The development of cyberspace defense capabilities for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has been making steady progress since its formal introduction at the North Atlantic Council Prague Summit in 2002. Bolstered by numerous cyber attacks such as those in Estonia in 2007, Alliance priorities were formalized in subsequent NATO cyber defense policies that were adopted in 2008, 2011, and 2014. This monograph examines the past and current state of NATO's cyberspace defense efforts by assessing the appropriateness and sufficiency of them to address anticipated threats to member countries, including the United States.

These challengers employ unique combinations of influence, intimidation, coercion, and aggression to incrementally crowd out effective resistance, establish local or regional advantages, and manipulate risk perceptions in their favor."
