- Contractors on Deployed Military Operations: United Kingdom Policy and Doctrine. Authored by Professor Matthew Uttley.
- The author examines the controversies surrounding deployed contractor support, the ways that the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MoD) has harnessed private sector capacity, and the lessons this provides for U.S. policymakers and military planners. He suggests the need for ongoing policy and doctrine refinement by defence officials as well as greater independent scrutiny of developments, not least because the use of contractors on deployed operations has an important impact on government expenditure choices, public accountability, the efficiency and effectiveness of the military establishment, and the conduct and outcome of armed conflict.

- The establishment of a European expeditionary force will be no easy matter, will require substantial investment, and will take years to complete. However, it is the right course for Europe to take. The European Union (EU) cannot manage emerging security issues using Cold War legacy forces because they are too ponderous to deploy. A lighter, more nimble expeditionary force is critical to EU policy.
