All Elements of National Power: Moving Toward a New Interagency Balance for US Global Engagement
Addressing near-term security challenges and long-range global trends requires a broader approach in the execution of America’s regional national security policy, argues All Elements of National Power: Moving Toward a New Interagency Balance for US Global Engagement, a new report by the Atlantic Council’s Combatant Command Task Force. Improving interagency cooperation and integration reduces risks resulting from disjointed efforts in US global engagements and against uncertainty in a dramatically changing world. The report, chaired by General James L. Jones, Jr., USMC (Ret.), analyzes and provides recommendations on how the United States can resource and restructure to create a more balanced, forward-deployed regional approach essential to improving the integration of national instruments of power—diplomatic, informational, military, economic, and others—to advance US interests at the regional level.
