The State Partnership Program, a National Guard supported
initiative, is one of the many Theater Security Cooperation programs
available that the six Geographic Combatant Commanders use to meet their
objectives. This AY-10 USAWC Resident Student author presents
the foundations of the State Partnership Program to include its history, goals and objectives, and benefits achieved by using the program.
The paper also explores:
--- whether the program has it reached its full potential as a "Whole-of-Government" tool for
establishing enduring civil-military relationships while building partnership capacity
across all levels of society to promote international stability and security?
recommendations can be made for areas requiring improvements?
