The movie "Monuments Men" reminds us of a time when specialized military units had a direct role in filling the gaps of governance in war-torn countries. A vital aspect of military service includes indirect tasks in supporting governance, not only in post-conflict situations but also for conflict prevention. This roundtable discussion will examine the role of military forces in helping to build and preserve peace, the need to provide governance and security at the national and local levels, and the capabilities of interagency, intergovernmental, and non-governmental civil society organizations to lead and perform many of the functions originally given to the military. 

Speakers and panelists will offer insight into how various U.S. government and international organizations are addressing these questions.
