Stability, Security, Transition & Reconstruction (SSTR) 


Follow the SSTR Division on Twitter! @NDIA_SSTR

The mission of the SSTR Division is to provide a forum for the enhancement of interagency and industry coordination and collaboration from a security/defense vantage; to generate and advocate initiatives for the SSTR in pre-crisis/post-crisis situations and in persistent conflict or among “Failing/Failed” states; to provide synthesis and incubation of processes for pre-crisis, crisis and post-crisis planning, response, and lessons learned; and to provide a resource information center for public-private Partnerships.


The Division will focus on incorporating those activities aligned with interagency support to host nations.  It is all of the elements of “Whole of Government” when the U.S. government is not the aggressor, but rather the supporter of the host nation or developing or Failing/Failed state.  It includes disaster relief, humanitarian support, pre and post-crisis support, and expanding security and democracy.
