Military Assistance to the Civil Authorities in Democracies:- Case Studies and Perspectives

Case Studies and Perspectives


Suphan Erkula

This monograph examines from several national and comparative standpoints the framework within which military organizations can contribute to the well-being of civilian society when in need of support during normal times or periods of crisis in a domestic or international setting. It is therefore concerned, inter alia, with the risks and challenges posed by organized crime, unlawful drugs, terrorism, illegal or mass migration, and peacetime contingencies that will continually require updated and more sophisticated forms of supportive interaction between the civil and the military authorities.
Contents: Case studies from the Euro-Atlantic region, in particular France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
