Human Terrain Teams - A Good COIN Program That Should Stay!
Counterinsurgency (COIN) is about the population. In COIN it is necessary to secure the population and to engage it to ensure you have a good intelligence flow from the people and to persuade them to deny support and sanctuary to insurgents. Above all else, COIN forces need to understand the people to include their culture, religion, politics, geography and much more. Human Terrain Teams or HTTs help counterinsurgents understand the population. Learn more about Human Terrain Teams.
