Religious leader engagement as an aspect of irregular warfare : the dénouement of a chaplain operational capability / S.K. Moore, CD, PhD. : D4-13/25-2020E-PDF

"Changes to global conflict in recent decades have been seismic in nature. Whereas armies once faced off against each other very intimately on linear battlefields, the very rules of war have changed. Warfare in the 21st century is increasingly characterized by the blurring of lines between the states of war and peace; aggressors appear willing to employ insurgency, subversion, acts of terror, and covert action in parallel with conventional tactics to achieve their objectives. Uncertainty, volatility and lethality are enduring traits of the security environment, an environment whereby adversaries' fervor is ripe for fueling by religious extremism. … In this monograph, former Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Padre Steve K. Moore offers insights from his own operational experience, having deployed in combat zones during his time in uniform. His subsequent research cites the operational benefits of examining an Area of Operation through the unique lens of a chaplain via the conducting of a Religious Area Assessment (RAA). Local and regional religious belief systems, tribal influences, pertinent Holy sites and religious holidays may all impact the mission at some juncture. By extension, through Religious Leader Engagement (RLE), chaplains make critical, personal connections with local religious leaders, establishing relationships and building trust over time. It is these relationships that can both enable and enhance operations when, due to mission exigencies, the complex intersection of faith, politics and warfare intersect"--Foreword, pages ix-x.
