Abstract
This literature review comprises the first part of a research project titled “Modelling Meta-Organisational Collaboration and Decision Making”. It is directed at examining scholarly peer-reviewed literature as well as empirical and anecdotal accounts that would provide evidence that interagency collaborations between military and non-military organizations were possible, and to identify potential tensions therein. The first half of the report reviews military and police literature on a comparative basis, related to the demands of the job that influence values and norms within their functional spheres. The second half explores the reciprocal influence of military and policing on security initiatives, with the terrorist attack of 9/11 as both watershed and impetus. International missions also employ both police and military, infusing each organization with challenges such as a growing ethnic diversity, a push for gender equality, an increased commodification of services and infusion of complex technology. Such convergence bodes well for inter-agency collaboration.
