Conflict Management and 'Whole of Government'
Useful Tools for US National Security Strategy?
This book is a collection of various author's perspectives on the Whole of Government (WoG) concept for conflict management. It provides an analysis of WoG approaches used by the US, their effectiveness in coordinating stabilization and peace building efforts, for shifting the burden of stability operations to civilian actors, and the eventual scaling-down of military deployments. The authors present the central arguments and key findings of the discussion surrounding these practices, examining the conception of a WoG approach, critically examining WoG practices, and drawing lessons from the operational contexts of Iraq and Afghanistan.
