Abstract : Postconflict operations play an essential role in consolidating military accomplishments toward attainment of sustainable national strategic objectives. Clear objectives, defined by the National Command Authority, are used to describe the desired end state--the political, military, economic, and informational conditions required to achieve the objective. In virtually every case, all forms of national power must be integrated to create the desired conditions. Command and Control relationships tend to be very complex in the joint, combined, and interagency arena of postconflict operations. Additionally, transitions of control are a fundamental part of these operations. The principles of objective and unity of effort provide the framework for managing this process. Extensive interagency planning, coordination, and cooperation are required to achieve strategic success in this environment. (RWJ)
