Abstract
This research note develops the idea of a requirment for increased civil-military cooperation in complex humanitarian emergencies. It outlines the current emergency context in which civilian and military personnel must operate. It notes that the decision to deploy armed forces is a policy issue with operational implications for the coordination of civil and military resources. The study indicates that, despite mixed results since the beginning of the 1990's and the challenges that still lie ahead, progress is being made on improving civil-military cooperaion.
