The Role of the US Military in Foreign Assistance

Dr. Reuben Brigety II, director of the
Sustainable Security Program at the Center for American Progress and assistant
professor of Government and Politics at George
Mason University,
and Major Shannon Beebe, senior Africa analyst at the Office of United States
Army Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, will join us for a discussion on the role
of the military in U.S.
foreign assistance. The military’s role is expanding outside its
traditional purview and it is providing increasing levels of foreign
assistance. Is there a strategic framework guiding this expansion?
With new initiatives such as AFRICOM, how might the military and civilian
agencies cooperate to provide the most effective assistance?
