Abstract [en]

Since the end of the cold war, military interventions have shifted from concerning only to win peace in their operation areas towards start helping the society to rebuild the capacity for development and democracy after the end of the armed conflict. This is made through a large diversity of organisations and actors of various kind with a large range of activities and goals. For the best possible efficiency it could be assumed that these actors should gain from cooperating and working together since their overall intentions are the same. This is not the case though and for this there are several different reasons. It do occur civil-military relations in a couple of areas of operation and the purpose of this study was to explore in which of these the relations are more or less suitable; politics and diplomacy, security, humanitarian aid, reconstruction and peacebuilding. This was done through analyses of litterature on the subject and through a few interviews with experienced personell. The material is derived from scientific research, individual and independent reports but also from statements and comments from those who have actually been on the field. The study also investigated how the links and relations in those networks the actors on the field theater belong to can explain the problems and possibilities. There is no clear answer of which area of operation is most suitable for civil-military relations, but the areas for security and reconstruction have the best possibilities to succeed in achieving their goals if coordination and education about long term consequences are dealt with. The humanitarian aid is the area that is most riskful to perform cooperation within since it could be harmful for the relations of participating actors as well as for the long-term peacebuilding. It is necessary in certain situations though. The need for further coordination and education is emphasized to be held in the arenas that preceeds the field work. This is also what the result from the network analysis gives. All links between actors are important in the field area of an international operation, wether they are strong or weak. They give the possibility to bring the organisations together and increase the knowledge about eachother and also create an understanding for the different types of organisations goals and methods. This will in the long run create conditions for improved coordination and cooperation and thus stronger peacebuilding efforts.
