In response to previous years' demand, the Civil Affairs Association has asked the authors of the 2018-19 Civil Affairs Issue Papers to provide a one-page summary of their papers to gain an idea of their content before they are published the following spring. You can download them here.
The summaries are also intended to allow Symposium participants to review the paper concepts prior to their presentation at the Civil Affairs Symposium at Ft. Bragg, NC on 3 November, in order to vote for the best paper among the five finalists:
Authors are competing for per-paper cash prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place, and $250 for third place. For more on the Symposium go to www.civilaffairsassoc.org/events/
