Military Planning Handbook

The centerpiece of the MARO Project is Mass Atrocity Response Operations: A Military Planning Handbook, which was launched on May 5, 2010. The Handbook explains why MAROs present unique operational challenges and provides framing and planning tools to prepare the military. While primarily intended for military planners, it is also useful for policymakers and other non-military readers interested in the prevention of and military response to mass atrocities.

The Handbook is a living document and will continue to benefit from on-going thinking about and exercising of these concepts.
