    SOLLIMS Sampler (Feb. 2016) - Shifts in United Nations Peacekeeping

    SOLLIMS Sampler (Feb. 2016) - Shifts in United Nations Peacekeeping Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Over its seven decades of operations, United Nations Peacekeeping has received both international praise and international censure, from winning the Nobel Peace Prize to standing on the sidelines of genocide. In any case, peacekeeping remains a prominent tool utilized by the United Nations in the face of proliferated conflict."

    Peace & Stability Journal, Volume 6, Issue 2 Mister Robert C Browne Peace and Stability Journal by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "The increase in transnational terrorism and organized crime in many regions of the world has created insecurity and restricted economic development in many countries. These threats cause particular harm to countries which are emerging from conflict or are vulnerable due to a porous border and a lack of regulatory security structures. Good border management is vital to countering these threats, facilitating legal movements of people and goods, improving trade and commerce, and encouraging external investment."

    The Evolving Contingency Contracting Market: Private Sector Self-Regulation and United States Government Monitoring of Procurement of Stability Operations Services

    The Evolving Contingency Contracting Market: Private Sector Self-Regulation and United States Government Monitoring of Procurement of Stability Operations Services Miss Whitney Grespin PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute, US Army War College Press "The contingency contracting industry has shifted markedly in recent decades. The events of 9/11 led to a complete reorientation of military and stability operations activities worldwide such that the primary operating theater of many existing companies shifted almost entirely to Afghanistan and Iraq, while government demand also allowed for the creation of a myriad of new private entities to provide contingency contracting services."

    SOLLIMS Sampler – Foreign Humanitarian Assistance: Concepts, Principles, and Applications Mister David A Mosinski PKSOI SOLLIMS Sampler by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Foreign Humanitarian Assistance operations often involve a broad mix of participants: USG civilian and military organizations, coalition partners, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), international actors, and host nation (HN) government authorities. Accordingly, “civil-military interaction” and “unity of effort” are vital to success – key to saving lives and restoring/raising the social well-being of the HN population."

    Autonomous Weapon Systems: A Brief Survey of Developmental, Operational, Legal, and Ethical Issues Mr Jeffrey L Caton Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Stories about unmanned vehicles now appear regularly in the national news—and not always in good ways. Within the last 2 years, privately-owned drones have crashed on the White House lawn, surveilled the U.S. Embassy in Paris, and buzzed German Chancellor Angela Merkel. When used in military operations, autonomous weapon systems (AWS) have the potential to save lives as well as apply lethal force across land, sea, and air."

    The Human Terrain System: Operationally Relevant Social Science Research in Iraq and Afghanistan

    The Human Terrain System: Operationally Relevant Social Science Research in Iraq and Afghanistan Dr Christopher Sims Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The announcement that the Human Terrain System (HTS) was brought to a close in the fall of 2014 met with a flurry of responses. Commentators assessed the character and content of the social science research program and several identified plausible legacies that it may bequeath U.S. Armed Services. Often the conclusions therein were mixed, hinting instructively at the absence of a strong empirical record of the program. Therefore, this book is a welcomed larger study of the HTS, one of the first investigations to delineate the experiences of former program members, chart the stance of the American Anthropological Association, and gain engagement both from the U.S. Training and Doctrine Command, and a manager from the first primary contractor, BAE Systems."

    Strategic Insights: If You Want Peace, Prepare for War: Reflections on China's V–Day Parade

    Strategic Insights: If You Want Peace, Prepare for War: Reflections on China's V–Day Parade David Lai Article by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The Chinese government conducted a military parade to commemorate the “70th Anniversary of the Victory of the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and the World Anti-Fascist War” on September 3, 2015. Although Chinese President Xi Jinping uttered “peace” 18 times in his brief opening remarks and Chinese government propaganda flooded China’s media with massive unqualified praise afterward, this show of force was by no means a blessing for peace. On the contrary, it arguably will cast a shadow over China’s outreach in the Asia-Pacific region for years to come."
