Adapting America’s Security Paradigm

On 23 March the Washington-based National Strategy Information Center (NSIC) released a major report arguing that the United States and other democracies face a radically altered international security environment that will require a range of new and better integrated capabilities. The report, Adapting America’s Security Paradigm, argues for a reoriented and retrained US military, more effective local intelligence, professional military and civilian stabilisation teams, enhanced strategic communication, and development of a corps of civilian and military ‘political entrepreneurs’ to prevent and prevail in irregular conflicts. Andrew Shearer, the Institute’s Director of Studies, was a member of NSIC’s International Practitioner Working Group, which provided input to the report. Andrew Shearer
