Abstract
Many nations face an urgent need to strengthen civilian control over their armed forces. For nations that have recently liberated themselves from authoritarianism, the requirement to recast civil-military relations along democratic lines is especially urgent. However, even in many longer-established democracies, civil-military conflicts persist over defense budgeting, the roles and missions of the armed forces, and the mutual responsibilities of officers and civilians for effective civilian control. The President and Congress of the United States have recognized this need and expanded the International Military Education and Training (IMET) program to provide for the education of foreign military officers, legislators, and civilian officials in civil military relations.
