For those of you who don't know about the District Stability Framework, it's a conflict assessment tool used to diagnose the sources of instability in a given area and then develop context-appropriate programming to address them. It is mainly used in Afghanistan but has also been fielded in Sudan and the Philippines.
Here's a link to a 6-page "Quick Reference Guide" put out by the U.S. Army Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute. The DSF is a great tool and something I wish was available in 2003-2004 when I was with the military in Baghdad.
At any rate, my master's project at Duke is on the District Stability Framework, specifically how it is being used in the field and ways it can be improved. I've designed a short 10-15 minute survey that those who have experience with the DSF can take. If you have used it, please click on the link and take the survey. If you haven't please send it to someone you think might have used it and pass it on. The results will hopefully prove useful to USAID and ISAF as well as those at the tactical level engaging in stabilization.
