Abstract:
As the drawdown of United States forces in Afghanistan finishes, the United States will go through the process of reassessing what role the military should play in national security. This study explores civil-military relations institutionally, observing how key civilian and military actors have developed. This project takes a historical-institutional approach to the development of the institutions that compose the civil-military relationship, looking for patterns of development. This project concludes that the civil-military relations change during and after war or a perceived threat to national security, resulting in the introduction of new civil-military actors or the redefinition of an already existing actor’s role. The study reveals how military institutions develop and form policy in response to a previous security threat, resulting in unintended consequences.
