This case study for the PNSR highlights the importance of U.S. foreign assistance programs that strengthen the capacity of other nations to combat international terrorism. The study focuses on three relatively unknown civilian programs—the State Department's Anti-Terrorism Training Assistance, the interagency Counterterrorism Finance program, and the Justice Department's Overseas Prosecutorial Assistance and Training programs. Through these interagency programs, the U.S. Government has leveraged its counterterrorism expertise across federal agencies and shared "best practices" to partners and allies around the world. The study describes the interagency dimensions of these programs using Colombia, Indonesia, and Turkey as illustrative examples.
The Project on National Security Reform (PNSR) is a non-partisan initiative sponsored by the non-profit Center for the Study of the Presidency (CSP). PNSR seeks to improve the U.S. Government's ability to integrate all elements of national power and more effectively respond to the strategic challenges of the 21st century. Modeled on the historic effort that led to the Goldwater-Nichols legislation, PNSR has established nine working groups that are undertaking a rigorous study of the national security system. Historical case studies constitute the first element of the study methodology. These case studies will inform the analytic work of PNSR's other working groups by highlighting recurring trends in the way the U.S. national security system addresses complex national security problems. Ultimately, PNSR will recommend changes to the National Security Act of 1947, presidential directives to implement other reforms, and new Congressional committee structures and practices.
Attendees at PNSR workshops may use the information as background, but may not identify the speaker, the other attendees, or PNSR itself or quote anything said at the event.
We hope that you can attend.
