CSIS, 12 Dec 07: Final Report of the Task Force on Non-Traditional Security Assistance
Focus of Inquiry

The Task Force focused on three areas of DOD non-traditional security assistance:

- Counterterrorism (CT) Capacity Building Assistance to help partner countries police and control their territories, so that these territories do not become havens for terrorists, criminals, and insurgents. Relevant initiatives include the Trans-Saharan Counter-Terrorism Partnership (TSCTP), East Africa Counter-Terrorism Initiative (EACTI), the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA), and Section 1206 authority to train and equip foreign security forces for CT and stability operations.

- Post-Conflict Stabilization and Reconstruction efforts to shore up weak states, and prevent their deterioration and consolidate peace following “major combat operations”; including the establishment of Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs) as a vehicle to promote military-civilian collaboration in the field, and the creation of new funding mechanisms, notably the Commander’s Emergency Response Program (CERP).

- Humanitarian Assistance in response to major natural disasters (e.g., the Indian Ocean Tsunami and the Pakistan earthquake), failed states and, prolonged irregular warfare.

The Task Force also examined the newly-launched U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) with a view to how the military might pursue its coordination with the diplomatic and development communities most effectively to achieve success in the above three areas.
