Stability operations doctrine has a major role to play in the prevention or resolution of violence conflict around the globe. Terms used to describe stability doctrine have included military operations other than war and the doctrine has fallen under various umbrella doctrines such as peacekeeping, irregular warfare, and counterinsurgency. While it is widely agreed upon that stability operations are necessary to consolidate military gains and achieve strategic political objective in conventional warfare, their usefulness in unconventional contests, and what entity is responsible for their employment are hotly debated. The purpose of this thesis is to determine the utility of existing doctrine in modern & emerging warfare, to gauge the west’s degree of preparedness to counter emerging techniques, and to examine the role of one’s background to make appropriate decision through the lens of prospect theory.
