Abstract : This report documents the results of a project entitled Assessing Security Cooperation as a Preventive Tool. The project aimed to assess the evidence that security cooperation can be employed to prevent the onset of unrest and instability or other adverse conditions potentially leading to the development of terrorist safe havens from occurring in partner states. The analysis was conducted to support the Army leadership on decisions regarding the use of Army s security cooperation. The report should be of interest to those concerned with the U.S. and especially the U.S. armed forces role in global counterterrorist efforts and actions to reduce unrest and instability in partner states.
