I am sharing my newly published article that explicitly examines the contribution of the US military to strategic objectives in Latin America through security assistance and security sector assistance, as part of whole-of-government efforts to build relationships and strengthen governance in the region. 

The work is part of my effort to expand thinking on the real contributions our security cooperation organizations, and the activities that they conduct and coordinate, as an instrument advancing national strategic objectives, and how the military instrument is best understood and used in an environment not dominated by the prospect of major combat operations. This article originally appeared on the Web site of PRISM.
