About this title:
Synopsis:
Please see the newest, replacement volume Guide for Participants in Peace, Stability, and Relief Operations.

Peace and relief operations are always tough assignments. But they can be tougher still when you find yourself working alongside people who seem to have very different outlooks, approaches, and priorities. It is a problem that has grown significantly over the past decade, with many operations now bringing together intergovernmental organizations, nongovernmental organizations, and the military.

Developed specifically to dispel misconceptions and promote cooperation, Guide to IGOs, NGOs, and the Military gives readers the opportunity to develop a basic understanding of these leading players in peace and relief operations. For each type, the handbook presents its organizational philosophy and culture, internal structure, and working practices. It offers a series of quick but recognizable sketches, showing both the general characteristics and the most important variations.

The guide provides fact-filled profiles of dozens of the leading IGOs and NGOs. The Military section shows readers how to identify the service, rank, and specialty of military personnel and the weapons and other equipment most likely to be seen in the field. A variety of graphics and tables aid understanding and identification.

Designed to be taken into the field, the guide is compact, durable, and lightweight, with tabs and indexes that make it easy to find specific information.
