ABSTRACT

Importance of Ethics in Counterinsurgency Operations   [open pdf - 610KB]

"The intent behind this paper was to develop a set of key principles that would support both planners and operators in the conduct of counterinsurgency operations. This set of principles would also be morally acceptable on an international level, which would not only support the conduct of operations but would lead to enhanced legitimacy and acceptance. The development of these principles is important as the current methods that the Coalition is employing in both Iraq and Afghanistan are not only ineffective, but they are increasing the rift in relations between the West and the Middle East."
