More than ever, international security and economic prosperity
depend upon safe access to the shared domains that make up the
global commons: maritime, air, space, and cyberspace. Together
these domains serve as essential conduits through which
international commerce, communication, and governance prosper.
However, the global commons are congested, contested, and
competitive. In the January 2012 defense strategic guidance, the
United States confirmed its commitment "to continue to lead global
efforts with capable allies and partners to assure access to and
use of the global commons, both by strengthening international
norms of responsible behavior and by maintaining relevant and
interoperable military capabilities."
In the face of persistent threats, some hybrid in nature, and their
consequences, Conflict and Cooperation in the Global
Commons provides a forum where contributors identify ways to
strengthen and maintain responsible use of the global commons. The
result is a comprehensive approach that will enhance, align, and
unify commercial industry, civil agency, and military perspectives
