Stability Operations: Legal Aspects of ROE/RUF Afghanistan (SOLARA) (MASL P176017)
"The two-week SOLARA course focuses on the Legal Aspects of Rules of Engagement (ROE) and Rules for the Use of Force (RUF) relevant to stability operations. It is designed for forces that are deploying, continuing, or supporting deployments to Afghanistan.
The objective is to address the legal, operational, and policy aspects of rules of engagement in Afghanistan, through case studies and discussion of real-world incidents, including: the relevant law of armed conflict; coalition rules of engagement; and insurgent use of various improvised explosive devices. The resulting analysis explains the necessity to vary supplemental rules of engagement.
This course also examines the challenges and procedures for deploying forces to Afghanistan, working with public affairs, international human rights laws, fourth generation warfare, and counterinsurgency doctrine. It includes a review of ISAF Rule of Law Operations, combatant detention and detention scenarios, and the legal and operational challenges of concealment methods and techniques.
Participants visit New York City, where they have an opportunity to speak with anti-terrorism experts at the United Nations and in the New York area. They also take part in cultural familiarization activities in Newport, RI and New York City under the DIILS Field Studies Program (FSP)."
