The purpose of the Key Strategic Issues List (KSIL) is to provide military and civilian researchers a ready reference for issues of special interest to the Department of the Army and the Department of Defense (DoD). Unlike other lists that generally reflect issues which are operational or tactical in nature, the focus of the KSIL is strategic. The spotlight is, in other words, on those items that senior Army and DoD leaders should consider in providing military advice and formulating military strategy.
At present, the U.S. military is engaged in a changing situation in Iraq and an increasing presence in Afghanistan, as well as efforts to restore balance in force sizing and structure. With the publication of the 2010 KSIL, the Strategic Studies Institute and the U.S. Army War College invite all researchers to contribute to informing America’s leaders of current and emerging challenges.
Researchers are encouraged to contact any Strategic Studies Institute faculty member, listed herein, for further information regarding possible topics.
