Abstract:

Civilian and military leaders throughout the Department of Defense DoD acknowledge the importance of strategic communication for operational forces today. Although strategic communication has been defined in the DoD, much still needs to be done to develop joint doctrine that geographical combatant commands GCCs can use for implementing strategic communication in support of operations. This paper examines the development of strategic communication in the 21st century, discusses a framework for analysis and a model for communication which could be used as the foundation for doctrine, and provides recommendations for the future development of strategic communication joint doctrine.
