Description

Edited by Hans Binnendijk and Patrick M. Cronin. The United States needs to develop the capacity to conduct complex operations that require close civil-military planning and cooperation in the field. This study is a comprehensive review of this national need and examines how the need can best be met. Its main conclusion is that current efforts to build a civilian response capacity for complex operations are unfinished and that the Obama administration needs to dedicate additional attention, including new legislation and resources, to complete the task. It recommends what civilian capacity to build, how much of it is needed, and how to manage and organize it.
