This is the 7th Online Guest Lecture by members of the SCID Panel of Experts. Douglas Brand OBE presents a lecture entitled ‘The Case for Inter-Agency Co-operation in Peace Support Operations’.
This lecture presents the case for inter-agency co-operation in Peace Support Operations (PSOs), particularly in light of the absence of willingness for co-operation despite general agreement that co-operation is necessary. The lecture considers impediments to successful co-operation and how co-operation can best be facilitated by looking at examples from Iraq, Darfur and Palestine and by reflecting upon lessons identified and lessons learned.
