Abstract The sovereign states of the world today are characterized as either stable or in various levels of instability failed, failing, or fragile. The President of the United States in the 2011 National Security Strategy called on the United States Government (USG) to conduct activities of engagement that would stabilize unstable states. Mandates such as the National Security Presidential Directive/NSPD-44 and the Department of Defense Instruction 3000.05 direct unity of effort between the Department of State and the Department of Defense to create stability in unstable sovereign states and regions for the sake of U.S. national interests. This project identifies the necessity to understand the strategic environment before the USG applies limited resources to improve the security, economic, and governance conditions that can stabilize a state or region. The development and use of a comprehensive strategic stabilization assessment model readily enables the USG to understand the proximate causes of a sovereign state s instability. Once understood, the USG can correctly apply the appropriate ways with minimal means to achieve the necessary ends of stability.
