Abstract:

The study examined the civil military roles of indigenous armed forces under varying conditions of internal and external threats. The study analyzed political, economic, public service and security roles engaged in by 40 indigenous armed forces in developing countries in four world areas Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Near East, under normalcy and threat conditions. From the findings, implications for U.S. Army advisory and assistance operations were derived. Given the pervasive interactions among the IAFs and their civilian environments the study attempted to elaborate a theory that views internal conflict as a contest for the control of the mobilization base between the indigenous armed forces and the insurgent.
