Stability activities involve actions that may or may not involve the use or threat of force. They include tasks ranging from humanitarian assistance to training indigenous forces, and the transition to normalcy after major combat. Conducted throughout all campaigns, in conjunction with offensive and defensive activities, they may be the main effort to achieve a campaign objective. Military activities provide the conditions in which the other whole-of-government efforts can be applied to achieve normalcy.
This interim publication is functional tactical doctrine written to support all levels of training in stability actions and is intended to support commanders, staff and students alike.
It contains information on:
• tactics within the context of stability activities
• stability activities, tactical actions, tactical tasks and techniques
• enabling activities and tactical tasks.
