Last week, the U.S. Army Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute (PKSOI) published Impunity: Countering Illicit Power in War and Transition. The work contains a collection of case studies and analyses on the dynamics associated with illicit power and state weaknesses relating to preventing or resolving armed conflict.
Impunity addresses how to effectively respond to the illicit power structures and networks encountered in both conflict and post-conflict environments. These structures and networks undermine conflict resolution, stabilization, reconstruction, and peacekeeping efforts.
Impunity is the result of a 10-year interagency effort that included the U.S. Institute for Peace, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the intelligence community, international coalition partners, and the Departments of Defense, State, and Justice.
