The need for process improvement is well illustrated through his examination of how the interagency worked or did not work during various contingency operations from Vietnam through the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The author concludes by developing a proposed reform model and discussing how it can best be implemented. US Interagency Regional Foreign Policy Implementation is a must read for those involved in developing foreign policy or directing contingency and/or peacekeeping operations in the field.Chapter 1 - Introduction * Chapter 2 - Current Practices - Military * Military-Led Interagency Coordination Mechanisms * Political Advisors * Joint Interagency Coordination Group * Joint Interagency Task Force * Interagency Structures at the Geographic Combatant Commands * US Central Command * US Pacific Command * US European Command * US Southern Command * US Africa Command * Summary of Current Structures at the GCCs * Chapter 3 - Current Practices - US Civilian Agencies * State Department Structures for Civil-Military Coordination * Undersecretary for Political Affairs - Regional Bureaus * Bureau of Political-Military Affairs * Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations * US Agency for International Development * US Embassies * US Regional Missions * The National Security Council * Other Interagency Structures * Department of Homeland Security * Office of the Director of National Intelligence * National Centers * Presidential Special Representatives * Summary of Nonmilitary Interagency Structures * Chapter 4 - The Need for Improvement * Security Cooperation * Counterterrorism Engagement * Response to Disaster or Humanitarian Crisis * Complex Contingency Operations * Vietnam (1964-73) * Panama: Operations Just Cause and Promote Liberty (1989-90) * Haiti: Operation Uphold Democracy (1994-95) * Afghanistan: Operation Enduring Freedom (2001-Present) * Iraq: Operations Iraqi Freedom and New Dawn (2003-11) * Chapter 5 - Options for Improvement * Reform Options at the Regional Level * A Regional Integrated Interagency Organization * State Leads at the Regional Level * Military Leads at the Regional Level * A Parallel Regional Structure * Reform Options at the Country Level during Crisis Operations * An Integrated Interagency Structure * State Leads * Military Leads * A Parallel Structure * Chapter 6 - Analysis and Recommendation * Objectives * Analysis * Crisis Operations Models * Regional Models * The Recommended Reform Model * Applying the Model * Implementation Considerations * Bureaucratic Resistance * Diplomatic Endorsement * Locating the US Regional Missions * Regional Boundaries * Cost * Personnel and Culture * Congressional Support and Legislation * What If There Is No Appetite for Interagency Reform? * Appendix * Interagency Reform at the National Level * Abbreviations * Bibliography
