Capability Development in Support of Comprehensive Approaches - A New Book from CTNSP
"Capability Development in Support of Comprehensive Approaches:
Transforming International Civil-Military Interactions"
Edited by Derrick J. Neal and Linton Wells II
Edited by Derrick J. Neal and Linton Wells II, this book is the product of the Second International Transformation (ITX2) Conference, held in Rome, Italy, at the NATO Defense College (NDC) in June 2011.
This volume integrates papers and discussions from the conference co-hosted by NDC, Allied Command Transformation, and the International Transformation (ITX) Chairs Network. The chapters are grouped within the following categories associated with the Comprehensive Approach: Concepts, Policy and Organization; Technology; Leadership, Management, Education and Training; Integrated Approaches to Complex Operations; Implementation of the Comprehensive Approach - Haiti as a Case Study.
In 2008, NATO agreed to develop and implement the Comprehensive Approach concept to address international security challenges involving civil and military actors. The growing importance of the Comprehensive Approach in NATO, and complex operations in individual nations served as the impetus for the conference. The focus on capability development, rather than an agreed definition of a Comprehensive Approach, enabled the participants to identify "quick wins" at low cost for the Alliance.
