Just as U.S. government policy in dealing with the evolving 21st century security environment stands at a crossroads, so too does Civil Affairs. Civil Affairs emerged during World War II and came of age in missions during the 1990s, contributing to reconstruction efforts in Kuwait, Bosnia, and Kosovo. In recent years, U.S. Civil Affairs teams have been deployed to over twenty countries around the world, contributing to numerous missions and creating such demand that they have been unable to meet deployment requests. This document reviews existing analysis of U.S. Civil Affairs organization, requirements, proponency, end strength, and resourcing.
