Global Commons and Domain Interrelationships
Time for a New Conceptual Framework?
In this paper, the authors argue that attainment of US strategic, economic, informational, and military objectives is contingent upon assured access to, and freedom of action within, the commons. Accordingly, global commons access must remain at the forefront of US national security imperatives. Successful application of military power in and through the global commons in support of overarching US national objectives is likewise dependent upon the ability of military forces to access and maneuver within and across the commons - to deliver power in and through the various geographies.
