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
