  • ODI Magazine: Examining the Civil-Military Relationship in Conflict Zones | Charity & Security Network
    proximity to civilian populations and resource transfers may make civilian populations more vulnerable fuel local tensions create opportunities for corruption and diversion of resources and exacerbate conflict they write The authors also identify several ways of improving the guidelines governing the relations between the military and NGOs in conflict areas These include greater investment in dissemination and training on the guidelines and having NGOs more involved in the planning stages and decision making processes NGOs need to be present in the process of doctrine development much earlier in order to help ensure that relevant norms and standards are used and to craft appropriate limits and firewalls to safeguard humanitarian action In another article in the magazine Civil military Coordination The State of the Debate Simone Haysom research officer at ODI writes that increasing role of the military in humanitarian contexts in recent decades has necessitated an evaluation of current approaches According to the United Nations Inter Agency Standing Committee IASC there are four distinct scenarios of civil military coordination peacetime peacekeeping peace enforcement and combat each with their own set of guidelines In practice however it is often difficult to distinguish between these scenarios or to guide the transition between one scenario and another Haysom writes This grey area is created because non governmental organizations NGOs do not always understand the legal obligations on military forces in places they are working and that military actors are often unaware or unfamiliar with the space needed for humanitarian groups to provide assistance Therefore the solution Haysom recommends is not to disengage but to increase the dialogue between the two sectors Experiences from numerous contexts show that some level of dialogue preferably at an early stage has a greater chance of preserving humanitarian space and influencing military conduct In a number of contexts

  • House Hearing Looks at Militarization of Foreign Aid | Charity & Security Network
    military s involvement in assistance missions First the focus on the performance of programs of tactical or strategic value can mean assistance efforts are directed to places of the greatest potential threat rather than places of the greatest human need This would be in contravention of essential humanitarian principles of humanitarian action Next he notes that the military s growing involvement in this space risks the appearance of militarization of America s foreign assistance It also has real operational consequences in the field when implementing partners refuse to cooperate with the military or are reticent to work with USAID for fear of being linked to US foreign policy and losing their operational neutrality These concerns were echoed by the testimony of Nancy Lindborg President of Mercy Corps an international humanitarian and development organization working in 37 countries affected by conflict She said A chronic under investment in civilian capacities has led to an over reliance on military solutions and military tools In addition the military has pushed more a greater role beginning in November 2005 when the Pentagon issued Directive 3000 05 which put stabilization and reconstruction operations on a par with the military s traditional kinetic operations Although a key provision notes that many stability tasks are best performed by civilian actors Directive 3000 05 also emphasizes the need for DOD to play these roles when civilian capacity does not exist Lindborg testified that the consequences have been harmful When the lines blur between military and civilian actors insecurity can increase for civilians The ability to provide aid and security for relief workers is dependent on being perceived as independent from the military She gave an example about members of a Danish NGO operating in Faryab Iraq who were warned by a community that their safety was in jeopardy because of government relations When NGOs are associated with the military we are more likely to be perceived as a legitimate target and so have a greater vulnerability Our value and ability to work in insecure environments is thus further compromised she added According to the testimony of former USAID Administrator Philip Christenson simply shifting resources from defense to civilian agencies will not solve the problem He described legal constraints on USAID operations and administrative problems that should be addressed Calling for a more comprehensive strategy he said If we want to defend the role of the civilian agencies the path to that objective is country ownership of the American assistance activities in that country State and the foreign aid agencies not just USAID need to negotiate with the governments of the countries especially with the democratically elected governments and reach a common strategy and a detailed plan for US foreign assistance from all sources There is no problem with DOD being part of the plan Retired Marine Corps General Michael Hagee also recommended smart power as the strategic triad of the 21st Century the integrated blend of defense diplomacy and development But this strategic approach will only be effective
