Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter presents a process model of civil-military cooperation (cimic). It discusses about the practice of the cimic. The chapter addresses the body of knowledge of the cimic in various ways. It provides the phases and outcomes in the process of cimic. Based on the process-based partnership model and confirmed by the three cases studies the research concludes that civil-military partnerships go through three successive phases: formation phase, operation phase and evolution phase. Three main causes underlying the differences in performance of the partnerships have been discerned such as the involvement of the local population and humanitarian organisations and the ad-hoc character of partnerships. Military institutions should improve the knowledge and expertise of military involved in civil-military cooperation. This applies to military officers in general and dedicated cimic personnel (i.e., cimic staff and functional specialists).

Keywords: ad-hoc character; civil-military cooperation (cimic); partnerships; process model
