Abstract
Recent military engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan, the proliferation of violent nonstate actors, and the rise of ISIS have sparked a debate on the need to create a sixth domain of warfighting, the human domain. This article builds off of military doctrine and scholarly articles and books to offer (a) a definition of the human domain and (b) its military objective—building influence to affect behavior of a target population better than the adversary.
