Abstract:

Crisis intervention and follow-on national stabilization are challenging military contingency operations that receive few planning, programming, and budgeting resources. The National Security Strategy, National Military Strategy, and the Quadrennial Defense Review all affirm that the military will be assigned to provide stability to Troubled States as part of our full spectrum of operations. These missions are frequently open ended, and the military tools and skills used for higher spectrum military operations do not apply well. However, there are techniques and cultural behavioral models frorn applied anthropology that may allow the performance of the stabilization mission with fewer combat resources.
