Chapter Summary

The Kosovo case study focuses on civil-military partnerships between civilian actors and the Dutch Engineering Relief Battalion (1 (NL) EngrreliefBn). Reconnaissance were deployed to Kosovo and tasked to investigate sites to build the three compounds of the Dutch contingent. The main motives for 1 (NL) EngrreliefBn to cooperate with civilian actors are found in the internal analysis. The organisation structure of 1 (NL) EngrreliefBn shows that the battalion had considerable transport capacity at its disposal. 1 (NL) EngrreliefBn had little financial means to carry out humanitarian activities. These mainly consisted of two funds of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Based on the identified civilian actors, 1 (NL) EngrreliefBn undertook several actions in its search for appropriate organisations to cooperate with. These involved (informal) talks of employees of the civil-military cooperation (cimic) branch with representatives of humanitarian organisations.
