Title Security Cooperation in Support of Theater Strategy.
Publication Date Feb 2013
Media Count 7p
Personal Author J. Hansen M. Hartmayer
Abstract The execution of security cooperation in the service component commands around the globe is an evolving process that occurs in many forms and utilizes a myriad of methods. Requests for assistance for security forces also come in many forms. They may be country or country-team-nominated; they may be at the request of an international organization (e.g., UN, NATO) or subregional organization (e.g., European Union, African Union); they may be directed by Office of the Secretary of Defense, service headquarters, or geographic combatant commands; or they could be requested by a sister service component. However, the huge number of events, the variety of outside actors with separate agendas, and the difficulty in linking these actions and activities to strategy create a challenging environment in which to execute a coherent plan. The problem for the strategist is to synergize or fashion these efforts and players through a process that supports the commander s goals and objectives. The purpose of this article is to identify and link the key components of security cooperation and strategy development processes for those outside the small group of practitioners who wrestle with them normally. Critical steps in building and maintaining a viable theater level strategy are listed below: (1) Set the theater security cooperation strategy; (2) Align, develop, and prioritize security cooperation activities within the theater; and (3) Use the security cooperation planning process.
