Abstract:

Security assistance is a significant part of our nations foreign policy effort, through providing tangible support to our allies and other nations to help shape the security profile across the world. Although only a small fraction of the federal budget less than 1, its development and management can significantly affect our influence abroad. Still, it is important to realize the importance of the proper execution of security assistance in order to maximize its potential. A strong security assistance program can provide a powerful tool useful in achieving our foreign policy goals, while a weak program can undermine our efforts.
