Summary:

This Interim Guide focuses specifically on insurgency and the strategies and tactics to combat it, collectively known as counterinsurgency (COIN). Information, including intelligence; economic development, incentives, and sanctions; security and public services; and social and political resolution are all necessary components of COIN, and none is sufficient in isolation from the others; moreover, each of these four spheres depends on the others. This document is intended to provide a broad understanding of the characteristics of COIN, and to serve as a basis for interagency discussion of policy, programs, and the development of national capabilities relevant to COIN.
