May/June 2002 (vol. 17 no. 3)
pp. 14-16

Current and future military missions will increasingly involve multinational forces. Ideally, such forces should be rapidly drawn together, flexibly led, and responsively deployed. Moreover, these multinational forces will need to address a wide range of dynamically evolving tasks to support defensive, policing, or humanitarian missions, both locally and throughout the world. Such missions often involve objectives set by consensus in the international community (for example, through the United Nations). These missions require agility and effective use of limited resources to achieve complex and multiple objectives. Participants will need to assemble and maintain a "virtual organization" reflecting the interests of the participating countries and nongovernmental organizations and their capabilities.
