The NGO-military interface in post-conflict and post-disaster contexts

This project addresses interaction, cooperation and coordination between the Australian military and NGOs. It aims to develop a more complex understanding of the nature of the relationship and the barriers, attitudes and practices that underpin it. It will compare civil-military relations between the same group of actors across three settings: post-conflict Timor-Leste; ongoing conflict in Afghanistan; and a post-natural disaster site.
