Because a server issue took us offline, we are taking the opportunity to rebuild the Strong Angel III site. For now, we have attached several key documents which many people have asked to be available.
Briefing: Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction: Observations and Recommendations from the Field
Reconstruction after natural disasters often occurs in volatile environments that expose cultural, ethnic, socio-political, and economic fault lines, and the conditions are often worse when the disaster is man-made. Most of the contributing authors on this document have seen both. We have—separately—been involved in a range of international Stability, Security, Transition, and Reconstruction (SSTR) operations over the past decade and have accrued observations and recommendations for improving SSTR strategy and conduct.
