A new model concerning the concepts of host nation security force development, or security sector reform (SSR), is proposed. This model is rooted in scholarly literature and seeks to fill current gaps in United States Army doctrine. The model is mobilized as a dependent variable, changing with different conditions of insurgency and ethnicity. This is a novel approach because it considers distinction between military and police forces as the central concept. Additionally, current security sector reform policies and procedures are not well theorized nor codified in doctrine. Empirical studies were carried out in order to validate hypotheses generated by this new proposed model.by Shawn Fitzgerald.Thesis (S.M.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Political Science, 2013.Cataloged from PDF version of thesis.Includes bibliographical references
