On Aug. 25, the Defense Department released its highly anticipated Civilian Harm Mitigation and Response Action Plan (CHMR-AP).

  • Todd Huntley, director of the National Security Law Program at Georgetown University Law Center and former Judge Advocate General, said his biggest takeaway from the plan was that it makes civilian harm mitigation “part of how the military thinks, plans and operates.”
  • A challenge to implementation will be sharing information and data across different DoD entities, he said.
  • The plan’s call to establish a civilian protection center of excellence is a great idea, said Huntley, but its success will depend on resources and the details of how it is carried out.
