New definition

New definition

Integrated approach:

all authorities or parts of an organisation (e.g. the UN) involved in a given stabilisation effort work together towards a commonly defined stabilisation goal. This encompasses collaboration on planning, implementation, and lesson learning regarding political, development, and security-related efforts. An integrated

stabilisation effort may take place before, during, and after a conflict. Integrated stabilisation efforts may well be applied without any military element.1


Changes codified in the new paper

Changes codified in the new paper

  • UN > NATO terminology (= UK)

  • Humanitarian assistance no longer seen as part of the integrated approach

  • Respect for ”humanitarianspace” shouldfacilitate future cooperation with humanitarian organisations

  • New institutionalstructure to support the mainstreaming of the integrated approach


Whole of government structure

Whole-of-Government Structure

  • Stabilisation Committee: deputy permanent secretaries from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Defence, the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Ministry of Justice

  • Stabilisation Secretariat to support the committee

  • Task forces dealing with specific issues

  • Danish Peace and Stabilisation Fund (930 million DKK 2010-14)

  • Danish Peace and Stabilisation Response (civilian rapid reaction rosters)


Future policy

Future policy

  • Greaterfocus on the strategiclevelreflecting the problems experienced at the tacticallevel in Iraq and Afghanistan

  • Political ambition to prioritizeconflictprevention

  • HOWEVER!

  • Definition of stabilisation so broad as to includevirtuallyeverything

  • Libya air campaign = stabilization

     Actual policy willbedetermined by international/allieddemand


Remaining challenges

Remaining challenges

  • Danish system remainsessentiallystovepiped

  • Stabilizationcommittee not a decision making organ; coordination and discussion forum

  • Joint civil-militarytrainingverylimitedabove the tacticallevel

  • Lessonslearning, monitoring and evaluationremainstove-piped; hardlyanyinterministerialactivityhere
