520    Confronting an era of persistent global conflict with 
       stable or declining defense resources, the United States 
       needs partners to augment their own security-related 
       capabilities and capacity. The U.S. Air Force has worked 
       for many years with allies and friendly nations to build 
       strong and enduring partnerships reinforce other nations' 
       capacities both to defend themselves and to work in 
       coalitions, and ensure U.S. access to foreign territories 
       for operational purposes. The activities conducted by the 
       Air Force range from training, equipping, and exercising 
       with others to holding bilateral talks, workshops, and 
       conferences and providing education. Yet, it is often 
       challenging to specify how much and in what ways these 
       activities have contributed to U.S. policy objectives. 
       This report builds on prior RAND research that developed a
       conceptual framework for assessing the Air Force's 
       security cooperation efforts. In this follow-up study, 
       researchers worked with Air Force leaders to better 
       understand and attempt to overcome certain obstacles to 
       the implementation of RAND's proposed framework. This 
       report presents the results of surveys of and focus groups
       with a variety of Air Force leaders on security 
       cooperation assessment. It presents a refined framework, 
       based on these results, that focuses on four questions-Why
       assess? What to assess? How to assess? Who should assess?-
       and provides examples of how the framework could be 
       applied to two example Air Force programs, the Operator 
       Engagement Talks and the Military Personnel Exchange 
       Program. The authors conclude with a discussion of 
       problems identified and recommend a four-part strategy for
       establishing a new, integrated approach to Air Force 
       security cooperation assessment
