Nation Building

The practice in which a foreign military force occupies a country to build infrastructure (such as roads and schools) and/or to protect the local government until it becomes stable. Nation building is highly controversial. Proponents argue that it stabilizes nascent democracies and protects local citizens, while critics contend that it is an unnecessary use of resources and can protect unpopular governments.
