dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines SOFs recent experience in Mali and determines whereor to what extentit should be considered a failure. In addition to analyzing these encounters, a second aim of this thesis is to make recommendations for how SOF might better build partner capacity and capability in the future. The argument made is that enduring engagement is of enduring value; episodic engagement, on its own, is not. Examples of both types of engagement can be found in United States Special Operations Forces recent interactions with the Malian military.en_US
