between criminal and ideological insurgent groups has led to ineffective mitigation efforts. Countering transnational criminal threats is different from neutralizing a terrorist network or ideological insurgency. The working group examined an existing terrorist/insurgent network using several analytic models to identify the key elements defining the network as an ideological or terrorist insurgency. The deliverables were an analytic model with indicators for differentiating transnational organized criminal and terrorist/insurgent networks, which can be incorporated into a software platform for integration into training modules. A subsequent WG objective was to establish a set of principles for countering/mitigating transnational organized threats. WG4: Organizing the Generating Function of Security Force Assistance Institutions: Security and Justice, and the implications for Governance, Social, and Economic Institutions was sponsored by the Joint Center for International Security Force Assistance ( JCISFA). Lessons have shown that isolated U.S. train and equip approaches in partner nation (PN) operating forces have no parallel development in the PN security institutions negatively affect longer-term sustainability. The group explored factors and considered the doctrinal, training, and education needs the joint force requires to organize a generating function within a PN security force as part of Security Force Assistance (SFA). Deliverables will include an outline of recommendations and force development strategies for integration within doctrine, training, and education. The recommendations and force development strategies will serve to inform Security Force Assistance concept development and DOTMLPF-P solutions as part of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ’s (CJCS) Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System ( JCIDS) and joint force development ( JFD) process. WG5: Develop a common curriculum to improve interagency planning and collaboration in the area of Stability Operations, with an emphasis on design, level of planning (strategic/operational), ownership, delivery and assessment was co-sponsored by PKSOI and the Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations (CSO), Department of State. CSO). Whole-of-government solutions to current and future challenges are essential, yet a common educational and training methodology to developing and implementing whole-of-government approaches to stability operations does not exist. The group analyzed and assessed previous curricula, the availability and adequacy of relevant case studies, and effective measures for integrating interagency best practices into education and training. Deliverables included: • Summary of the discussion • Current best practices and gaps for interagency education • Elements of a core curriculum and delivery recommendations • Proposed way ahead with stakeholder leads WG6: Pilot Sections of a New Civ-Mil Relations Course was sponsored by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). A previous working group convened at the 2015 PSOTEW was designed to develop the central themes for a new Civ-Mil Relations Course to meet the needs and challenges identified by polic 7G&FVwWW'G2B&7FFW'2FB&RB&VrFG&W76VBFW"6W'6W2&6VBF6RVff'G2U4FW6vV@FR6W'6RBFVBBGW&rFRv&6FVƗfW&&W2&P&Wf6bFR6W'6R6FVB&6VBw&W'F6FvFFRf'7B6W'6R66VGVVBF&RFVvB#bࠤW7BF&VRbFRRF72FBvW&R6WBWBFR&WB6RWfV@@
