Ellen Klein

Dr. Ellen Klein is presently serving in the office of Rule of Law and Detainee Policy/Office Secretary of Defense. She is a Fulbright Scholar and a Congressional Fellow who served in a rule of law capacity in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Her views here are her own and in no way represent those of the Department of Defense or any part of the United States Government.

While COIN remains the convention, to varying degrees, in post-conflict and steady-state operations, rule of law will be an essential part of the US security mission.
