Abstract:

The United States Special Operations Command USSOCOM 2011 Research Topics list is intended to guide research projects for Professional Military Education PME students, JSOU faculty, research fellows, and others writing about special operations during this academic year. Research is one of the cornerstones of JSOUs academic mission as we strive to produce publications to meet joint Special Operations Forces SOF operational and planning needs. Each year representatives from USSOCOM, the Theater Special Operations Commands TSOCs, SOF chairs from the war colleges, and JSOU senior fellows develop a list of salient issues confronting SOF in the near term. The list is vetted through the components and TSOCs to ensure that research will advance SOF missions and support SOF interests. The final recommendations for research topics are approved by the USSOCOM commander. These topics, concepts, and processes reflect the challenges of winning the current conflicts and meeting the needs for the conflicts most likely to face us in the foreseeable future. This alone speaks to the need for more debate, research, and study. If you have any questions about this document, JSOU Press in general, or how JSOU can assist you in your academic research, contact the director of Research, jsou.researchhurlburt. af.mil.
