United States Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Executive Summary: "The United States Strategy to Prevent Conflict and Promote Stability seeks to break the costly cycle of fragility and promote peaceful, self-reliant nations that become U.S. economic and security partners. The United States will pursue a new approach that addresses the political drivers of fragility and supports locally driven solutions. The United States will engage selectively based on defined metrics, host country political will, respect for democracy and human rights, defined cost-sharing, and mechanisms that promote mutual accountability with national and local actors. This Strategy outlines four goals to guide United States efforts across priority countries and regions: [1] Prevention; [...] [2] Stabilization; [...] [3] Partnerships; [...] [4] Management. [...] The United States will achieve these goals by aligning U.S. Government operations, setting clear priorities, and integrating all tools of U.S. foreign policy: diplomacy; foreign assistance; defense support and security cooperation; trade and investment; sanctions and other financial pressure tools; intelligence and analysis; and strategic communications."
