Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews theories on cooperative arrangements to determine whether they provide insights regarding the phases, factors and outcomes of civil-military cooperation. It provides an overview of the theories reviewed which identify phases in the development of strategic alliances. The identified phases of a theory are clustered under the three main headings, formation phase, operation phase and evolution phase. The chapter also provides the factors derived from a number of theories on strategic alliances. Three factors (flexibility, strate-gic fit, and trust) are considered general factors as they occurred in each phase. A network can construct a unique set of internal and external linkages for each project. A social network can be defined as a set of nodes (e.g., persons, organisations) linked by a set of social relationships (e.g., friendship, the transfer of funds, overlapping membership) of a specified type. Power and centrality play important roles in networks.

Keywords: civil-military cooperation; cooperative arrangements; evolution phase; formation phase; operation phase; social network; strategic alliance development
