Civil-Military Relations

The TISS study of civil-military relations, the Project on the Gap Between Military and Civilian Society, examined the relationship between the military and society in the post–Cold War world. It addressed a priority concern for military and civilian leaders alike. Is there a gap between civilian society and the military, and if so, does this gap harm military effectiveness and civil-military cooperation?

Directed by Peter D. Feaver and Richard H. Kohn, the project involved a team of over two dozen scholars from the academy, the military, and the national security community and resulted in an array of publications, including Soldiers and Civilians: The Civil-Military Gap and American National Security, edited by Feaver and Kohn.
