Transitioning from Military Interventions to Long-Term Counter-Terrorism Policy
ICCT in collaboration with Leiden University’s Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) and the Australian National University’s Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy carried out the ‘Transitioning from Military Interventions to Long-Term Counter- Terrorism Policy’ research projecy in the context of NATO Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme. The project attempted to identify factors and best practices to transform a broad military intervention into a more limited counter terrorism policy.
The project focused on assessing how military interventions can best prepare the ground for an effective long term counter-terrorism policy, looking at three case studies: Libya, Afghanistan and Mali. Each case was analysed and discussed during three high level expert meetings, the findings of which were presented in research papers. The combined insights of these case-studies were distilled into a set of strategic policy recommendations which are organised around three key themes:
- Pre – intervention phase
- Entry – phase of the military intervention
- Transition – phase towards local ownership
Outcome of the Project
The recommendations and findings of the case studies can be found and downloaded here.
