In the future, the United States will most likely be involved in combat operations, peace enforcement, peacekeeping, and humanitarian operations during which the restoration or establishment of the governmental infrastructure provides the center of gravity to promote democracy and provide stability within a region. This paper focuses on the complex problems associated with restoring law and order within failed and failing states. The study uses three historical examples to define the problem, to assess current doctrine, and to discuss the capabilities of the United States and the international community to execute these missions. It offers recommendations for the successful conduct of such operations.
