Post-Conflict Reconstruction Roundtable Series

Staff: Major General William L. Nash, U.S. Army (Ret.)
November 2007 - Present

The Post-Conflict Reconstruction Roundtable Series provides a forum for experts from the U.S. government, military, private sector, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) to assess U.S. post-conflict reconstruction and stabilization (PCRS) capabilities (military and civilian), discuss challenges in undertaking PCRS operations, and develop policy recommendations to improve future stabilization and reconstruction operations. The series will pay special attention to the prospect for increased civilian-military coordination in reconstruction efforts, progress within U.S. government agencies in implementing National Security Presidential Directive 44 (NSPD-44), and the experience of Provincial Reconstruction Teams in Afghanistan.
