Abstract
This study is a descriptive analysis of the Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) concept as applied by Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States in Afghanistan and in Iraq. The aim of this study is to identify the commonalities across respective experiences so as to inform doctrine revision and force development. The study begins with a comparison of the three countries’ experiences in Afghanistan and establishes preliminary conclusions based on these experiences. It then examines the American and British application of the concept in Iraq, and establishes corresponding conclusions. Finally the paper discusses the most frequently mentioned challenges of PRT operations in Afghanistan and in Iraq. A bibliography of the works consulted follows this study.
