"This conference report presents an overview of the proceedings of a two-day workshop on Interim Governance that took place at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA on July 14-15, 2005. The conference was organized by two professors in the National Security Affairs department of the Naval Postgraduate School, Karen Guttieri and Jessica Piombo, with the support of the Navy International Programs Office and the Department of National Security Affairs. The workshop brought together academics and policy experts who have been involved with researching and working in the field of transitional governance and interim regimes, with the goal of examining the innovations in interim governance that had occurred since the end of the Cold War. Designed to be a small gathering so as to encourage active discussion and debate, the proceedings were intended to initiate a dialog between the academic and policy world. Two of the main goals were to trace the evolution of transitional governance in the past decade and to analyze the increased international involvement in transitional regimes, with particular attention to the longer term consequences of heavy international involvement on domestic legitimacy, stability, and governance. Participants were asked to prepare case studies and theoretical works that examined a number of critical cases in international governance, and which probed various themes."
