Abstract:

The National Guard Bureaus State Partnership Program NGSPP has been a tool for engagement since its inception in 1992. This program filled a critical void prior to the establishment of the Partnership for Peace PfP program in 1994 and it continues to develop in Europe under the umbrella of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO PfP program. Much has changed since the NGSPP originated through partnerships with three nations emerging from the demise of the Soviet Union. Today there are 29 nations involved in the NGSPP, both in Europe and in the Western Hemisphere. This project provides background and analyzes how the NGSPP has evolved as a tool of preventative diplomacy in support of the current National Military Strategy in the context of shape, respond and prepare now. Further, it examines the NGSPP as it applies to Latin America and it suggests how some concepts of the NGSPP could be adapted to better support the National Military Strategy in the 21st Century.
