    The Fate of the Civilian Surge in a Changing Environment Mister Ryan Sean McCannell PKSOI Paper by US Army War College, US Army War College Press, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "As the United States winds down its stabilization operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Department of State (DOS) and U.S. Agency for International Development will face bureaucratic and political pressures to abandon their already modest reconstruction and stabilization (R&S) lines of effort in favor of more traditional diplomacy and development assistance priorities."

    SOLLIMS Sampler – Stabilization and Transition (August 2016) Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "In this edition, we cover the following stabilization areas/subjects: Governance, Security, Economic Stabilization, Infrastructure, Rule of Law, FHA / HADR, and Interagency derived from the current internally accepted stabilization sectors and US Department of Defense Policy and Doctrine. 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."

    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."

    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 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."

    SOLLIMS Sampler – Investing in Training for, and during, Peace and Stability Operations Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Perhaps the greatest “enabler” for successful peace and stability operations is Training. It is absolutely imperative that contingents, teams, and individuals designated for deployment to complex environments are properly trained on the spectrum of peace/stability tasks required to accomplish the mission/mandate –and that host nation personnel assuming new roles and responsibilities for their fragile nation/government in the aftermath of conflict/instability are likewise comprehensively trained to accomplish their new duties. The following selection of lessons attests to this imperative."

    Peace & Stability Journal, Volume 6, Issue 3 Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Against the backdrop of the Taliban’s late September 2015 seizure of Kunduz as well as the emergence of Islamic State groups mainly in south and east Afghanistan, the jury is out on the long-term effectiveness of the Afghan National Defense and Security Force (ANDSF). To address this challenge, Afghan leaders should consider creating an Afghan Army Reserve (AAR) that recruits mainly former ANA soldiers, Afghan Local Police (ALP) that supplement National Police personnel at the local level, and village-level militias that have traditionally responded to tribal elders."

Lessons encompassed an array of stability topics, including Security, Development, and Rule of Law."
