Summary
In this monograph, the author proposes a way for non-military organizations to render assistance and development to fragile states through an organizational approach. Accordingly, he proffers the concept of the Government Assistance Center as a vehicle for effective coordination and cooperation in whole of government and comprehensive approaches. Conceptually, the GAC embodies a standardized camp and an organizational structure for decision-making. The standardized camp has an expeditionary capability, using state-of-the-art barrier and shelter systems. Standardized camps permit diverse organizations and agencies to interface with one another as well as with the host government in an orderly manner. In this sense, it epitomizes the government-in-a-box concept. Due to their standardized design, GACs have the same capabilities regardless of the contributing nations and organizations involved. Their expeditionary character permits GACs to deploy into remote countries and become operational within days. Moreover, centers may relocate within a country quickly, adapting to dynamic changes. The most interesting feature of the GAC is the integrated decision-making apparatus. This unique capability permits the formulation of policy and strategy to occur within the host nation, leading to more practical and germane solutions to national and local issues. The integrated nature of the apparatus encourages cooperation and coordination of participating organizations and agencies, injecting their expertise on issues which concern them. In praxis, this is smart power to the nth degree. The author concludes his study with points for consideration regarding prevalent issues which confront practitioners, and he briefly discusses how the UN might place GACs into practice. Ultimately, the monograph provides a way for whole of government and the comprehensive approaches to succeed without excessive dependency on the U.S. Army's skill sets
