At the 2015 Civil Affairs Symposium that discussed Civil Affairs (CA) as a national strategic capability for “Phase 0” engagement and conflict prevention,LTG H.R. McMaster, Deputy Commanding General of Futures for the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, challenged the CA Regiment to help the Army “think, learn, analyze, and implement solutions” to the Army’s Warfighting Challenges (AWFC) that help the Joint Force consolidate gains and achieve sustainable outcomes in future conflict management. In addition to presentation of the 2015-16 Civil Affairs Issue Papers, this Roundtable will respond to that challenge through a professional development workshop to produce CA-related inputs to the AWFC. The National Defense University Center for Complex Operations will also update on current and recent research activities, including: lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan; evolving Defense Stability Operations policy; U.S. counter-terror strategy; understanding illicit networks; contributions to concept development for human aspects of military operations; metrics and assessments; and, U.S. initiatives in Defense Institution Building. The Roundtable will also survey developments more specific to civil-military operations, including interagency and multinational institutional partners. Finally, the Roundtable will look to identify the topical theme for the 2016 Symposium in the fall and 2016-17 Issue Papers.

This event is being held to enable consecutive attendance at the U.S. Army Peace and Stability Operation Institute Peace and Stability Operations Training and Education Workshop (PSOTEW) 6-8 April 2016 at Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery Campus in Rockville, Maryland.
