Chapter Summary

Civil-military cooperation (cimic) has two identities, each with different motives. The political identity of cimic can manifest itself at the lowest level as building 'consent' to the presence of a military force and therefore providing a means of protection. The humanitarian identity of cimic contains the idea of being a component of the broad strategy for transition to peace. To avoid prejudices and misper-ceptions caused by the acronym cimic, this research uses the term to indicate interaction and cooperation between military and civilian actors. The approach to carry out this research consists of four stages. The first stage is composed of a literature review to the process of cimic. The second stage of the approach consists of the development of the process model. The third stage of the research applies the process model to multiple holistic case study. The fourth stage compares the three cases on the identified performance criteria.

Keywords: civil-military cooperation (cimic); humanitarian identity; political identity
