A novel examination of civil-military interaction in particular between militaries and humanitarian actors, in light of the so-called ‘Norwegian model’ that espouses a clear divide between political and humanitarian (or military and civilian – the model is in fact unclear) actors, while maintaining a tight coordination between them. The Norwegian government has significantly reduced their own military’s capacity in the field of civil-military interaction, raising the question as to whether knowledge and skills in this field are necessary. This book examines whether or not the Norwegian government is correct in its assumptions (about both the model and civil-military knowledge amongst military personnel) and concludes that the Norwegian model is a well-meaning but inefficient and problematic model in reality. Although the case study focuses on Norway, the lessons learned are relevant to all nations engaged in civil-military operations.
