  19. NATOPolitical and Military Alliance • NATO’s essential purpose is to safeguard the freedom and security of its members through political and military means. • POLITICAL - NATO promotes democratic values and encourages consultation and cooperation on defence and security issues to build trust and, in the long run, prevent conflict. • MILITARY - NATO is committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. If diplomatic efforts fail, it has the military capacity needed to undertake crisis-management operations. These are carried out under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty - NATO’s founding treaty - or under a UN mandate, alone or in cooperation with other countries and international organizations.

  20. NATODecisions and consultations • NATO provides a unique opportunity for member countries to consult and take decisions on security issues at all levels and in a variety of fields. • A “NATO decision” is the expression of the collective will of all 28 member countries since all decisions are taken by consensus. • Each day, hundreds of civilian and military experts and officials come to NATO HQs to exchange information, share ideas and help prepare decisions when needed, in cooperation with national delegations and the staff at NATO HQs.

  34. NA5CROPrinciples • Flexibility: • Ability to adapt and move from one activity to another at short notice and with the minimum of outside assistance; • The eventual transition to a stable environment; • Forces balanced and independent interms of skills, capabilities, equipment, and logistics. • Promotion of Co-operation and Consent: • Amongst the parties are pre-requisites; • Any activity, which may result in a loss of consent, should be carefully balanced against the long-term objectives; • There may be consent at the strategic level but not necessarily at the tactical level.

  35. NA5CROPrinciples • Impartiality: • Requires the force to act on behalf of the peace process and mandate, and not show favour or prejudice to any party; • Applies to the parties to the dispute, not to possible spoilers (e.g., terrorists or criminals); • Key: Effective communications and Transparency of Ops. • Use of Force: • Force must apply military force prudently, judiciously, and with discipline; • IAW the provisions of International Law & ROE; • ROE do not limit the inherent right of self-defence; • Limited to the degree, intensity, and duration necessary; • A single act could cause significant military and political consequences.

  37. NA5CROPrinciples • Legitimacy: • Legitimacy is perceived by interested audiences as the legality, morality, or fairness of a set of actions; • Such audiences may include the home public, foreign nations, HN’s civil populations, and the participating forces; • If an operation is perceived as legitimate by interested audiences it will have a better chance of long-term success; • The participation of Partners broaden the basis of international support.

  38. NA5CROPolitical Primacy All NATO non-article 5 CRO will be under the political control and strategic direction of the NAC.


  40. NA5CROOperational Consideration A nation’s level of participation in an NA5CRO may vary in relation to its national strategic interest in the operation and resources available; therefore, national commitment to provide forces will vary accordingly and will affect the force generation process. When planning NA5CROs, initially only forces under the purview of NATO will be considered as the basis for force generation. The Political Military Framework (PMF) for NATO-led PfP operations was established in light of important Partner contributions and participation to NA5CROs.

  50. - PSO - I - Conflict Prevention Conflict prevention activities are normally conducted in accordance with the Chapter VI of the UN Charter.They may include: diplomatic, economic, or information initiatives; actions designed to reform a country’s security sector and make it more accountable to democratic control; or deployment of forces designed to prevent or contain disputes from escalating to armed conflict. Military assets used for conflict prevention should generally be focused on the support they provide to the political and developmental efforts to mitigate the causes of tensions and unrest. This can be before the commencement of intervention, or during or after intervention in order to protect and consolidate the reform. Military activities will be tailored to meet political and developmental demands but include: early warning, surveillance, and preventative deployment.
