Abstract:

HOW DO YOU measure economic development progress in a counterinsurgency COIN campaign Clearly, one should conduct some sort of rigorous assessment to answer this imposing question. Everyone up the chain of command, all the way to congressional appropriators, demands assessments of COIN actions--and rightfully so. In simple terms, we all want to know if what we are doing and paying for is working.
