Abstract:

The nature of the contemporary Joint Operational Environment JOE and likely projected futures present U.S. Joint Forces with considerable strategic planning and resourcing challenges. These challenges combined with pressure for smaller defense budgets will require integrated whole of government planning and execution and demand significant resource innovation to effectively meet existing and emerging threats. Peace building activities play a decisive role in the long term efforts to stabilize and build governance capacity in failed and failing states. This combined with a transition from contingency based panning to conflict prevention planning reinforces the need for an integrated approach leveraging unique complimentary non military organizations. This study examines the roll of Civil Society Organizations CSOs, as a strategic partner and offers the whole of society approach for harmonizing their unique contributions to achieve unity of action in strategic planning and execution.
