Since 1976, the International Military Education and Training (IMET) program has provided education and training to foreign military personnel. The program's objectives include professionalising military forces and increasing respect for democratic values and human rights. In 2010, Congress appropriated $108 million in IMET funding for more than 120 countries. The Department of State and the Department of Defense share responsibility for IMET. This book assesses changes in the program from fiscal years 2000 to 2010, by funding levels, students trained, and recipient countries; the program's provision of and emphasis on human rights training for its students; and the extent to which the Department of State and the Department of Defense monitor IMET graduates and evaluate program effectiveness.
