Dilemmas of Intervention: Social Science for Stabilization and Reconstruction

Excerpt

This monograph surveys and integrates scholarly social-science literature relating to stabilization and reconstruction (S&R). Its intent is to inform analysis and decisionmaking within the Department of Defense and other government agencies concerned with international interventions in the wake of conflict. It is a follow-on to a prior RAND study reviewing and integrating work on terrorism and counterterrorism:

Paul K. Davis and Kim Cragin, eds., Social Science for Counter
terrorism: Putting the Pieces Together
, Santa Monica, Calif.:
RAND Corporation, 2009.

The project was sponsored by the Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office of the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), with oversight provided by James Bexfield, the Director of Planning and Analytical Support in OSD’s Cost and Program Evaluation (CAPE) and the Irregular Warfare Modeling and Simulation Senior Advisory Group. Comments and questions are welcome and should be addressed to the editor and project leader, Paul K. Davis (Santa Monica, California; pdavis@rand.org).

This research was conducted within the International Security and Defense Policy Center of the RAND National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the Unified Combatant Commands, the Navy, the Marine Corps, the defense agencies, and the defense Intelligence Community.
