Abstract

This Governance Guide, fourth in the PKSOI Papers Series to be published by the U.S. Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute (PKSOI) and the Strategic Studies Institute (SSI), is designed to further U.S. military understanding of the critical nation-state building role that U.S. forces play during stability operations. This guide focuses on the military’s role in rebuilding and establishing a functional, effective, and legitimate nation-state; one that can assure security and stability for its citizens, defend its borders, deliver services effectively for its populace, and is responsible and accountable to its citizens. Neither a handbook nor a checklist, the document provides a comprehensive approach to planning and implementing a program to rebuild governance by U.S. peacekeeping forces during stability operations.
