Abstract : Peace keeping operations are often long-term operations. Some units and also specific soldiers with high-demand, low density military occupational skills have to be deployed again and again. The frequency and the duration deployment describe the PERSTEMPO. The challenge for the military leadership is to develop solutions for an equitable and acceptable PERSTEMPO. This project will analyze and assess current PERSTEMPO, and will make recommendations for a just PERSTEMPO. The research uses a model developed in the German Army.
