Militaries acting as part of international missions are recognised as a key contributor to post-conflict security, stabilisation, humanitarian response, development and governance within FCAS. International missions, including their military contingents, seek to address complex problems to bring coherence and coordination to the international community’s drive towards security, stabilisation, development and good governance in FCAS. Over the past few decades, military forces have been deployed to undertake an increasingly flexible range of duties, often resulting in a convergence between the strictly ‘military’ and ‘policing’ roles within operational environments where civilian populations are present.

NATO aims to be a successful learning organisation, embodied through the concept of ‘learning from experience to justify changes that will lead to improved performance during an operation’. The aim of this project is to identify lessons that can enhance the operational effectiveness of NATO military forces in efforts to respond to emerging security challenges.
