The Joint Civil-Military Interaction (JCMI) Network at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), in collaboration with the Multinational Joint Headquarters Ulm (MN JHQ Ulm), will host a:
JCMI Key Leader Symposium, 16-18 November
Advancing Health through Joint Civil-Military Interaction
The goal of the symposium is to bring civil society, military, interagency, and academic actors together to take a Walk-in-the-woods to discuss strategic and strategic-operational approaches to joint civil-military interactions in hybrid conflicts as well as humanitarian and peace operations. The symposium is designed to provide participants with the maximum opportunity to interact in an open and creative environment regarding Healthcare as Peacebuilding Activity.
Current civil-military relationships often fall short of what is needed to meet human security needs. Changing global antagonisms and hybrid conflicts call for innovative, Whole-of-Society approaches to conflict transformation.
You are invited to participate with civilian, military, interagency and academic leaders in
identifying new ways forward in addressing civil-military interaction. We seek to move beyond old debates that have often been counterproductive, and prevented our moving ahead. Rather, we look to engage creative thinkers in building new forms of theory and praxis.
Who We Are
The UNCG JCMI Network brings civil and military actors and scholars together to investigate issues impacting civil-military interaction in peacekeeping and humanitarian actions. JCMI is based on communication, planning, and coordination among international, national, and local non-military actors and military leaders before, during, and post-crisis to facilitate the mutual effectiveness and efficiency of each. The goals of JCMI are:
1. Establish and strengthen partnerships among JCMI actors,
2. Build international collaboration,
3. Inform and educate policymakers regarding JCMI, and
4. Promote public policy initiatives that advance JCMI within peacekeeping and humanitarian response communities.
Critical for success of the network is its partnership with MN JHQ Ulm which is prepared to contribute to command and control of worldwide crisis management operations as tasked by the United Nations, NATO, or the European Union. The headquarters is at the forward edge of joint operational planning and doctrine development.
