Chapter Summary

The development of the process model is based on the insights of literature review on civil-military cooperation and cooperative arrangements. Humanitarian organisations attempt to provide assistance (e.g., humanitarian aid, protection of minorities, refugees and displaced persons, medical care and reconstruction) often parallel to the deployment of military forces, based on their own charter and mission. The phases identified in theories on cooperative arrangements are adopted in the model. These are the formation, operation, and evolution phases. This chapter discusses the steps presented in the model such as partner selection, partner implementation, partnership design, transfer of tasks and responsibilities, partnership evaluation and partnership performance. Visibility of the assistance activities is for many humanitarian organisations a great source of income and considered very important. Visibility increases media attention, which often increases funding for an organization.
