Abstract:

This paper begins with a description of an Australian Special Forces raid in Afghanistan where civilians were killed and wounded. The subsequent White Paper prompted several questions What exactly are situations of armed conflict short of conventional war How does the Australian Defence Force ADF establish a secure environment in conflict zones What role should the ADF play in a stabilization situation And what can we do to further develop a whole-of-government effort And have we adequately organized, trained and equipped Australian forces for conflicts within societies To answer these questions, this paper examines how the Australian Government can assist another state government to restore and maintain public security by developing capacity in its security and criminal justice sectors.
