Chapter Summary

International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was an UN-mandated operation under United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCRs) 1386 and later 1413 and 1444. The mission of ISAF was to assist the Afghan Transitional Authority (ATA) in maintaining security within the area of greater Kabul so that the ATA as well as the personnel of the UN could operate in a secure environment. The Kabul case study focuses on the two subsequent rotations of ISAF, led by the German-Netherlands Corps. To increase the validity of the case study both methodological and data source triangulation were employed. A general literature study was executed and to obtain detailed information on the partnerships, semi-structured interviews were held with 14 key persons of ISAF and the humanitarian organisations. ISAF used several checklists in assistance activities that directly benefited the local population. These usually consisted of military criteria, feasibility criteria and concerns.
