ABSTRACT

Defense Science Board 2004 Summer Study on Transition to and from Hostilities   [open pdf - 2MB]

"It is clear from recent experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq that the United States must expect to encounter significant challenges in its future stabilization and reconstruction efforts -- efforts that seek to ensure stability, democracy, human rights, and a productive economy in a nation of concern. Achieving these ends will require effective planning and preparations in the years before the outbreak of hostilities, as well as employment, in the period following hostilities, of capabilities that are not traditional to U.S. Armed Forces. The Defense Science Board (DSB) was asked to consider the transition to and from hostilities to enhance U.S. effectiveness across this spectrum of activities from peacetime through stabilization and reconstruction."
