Peace operations became the core focus of many Western armed forces after the Cold War. The wish amongst political and military leaders during the 1990s to hold on to the classical identity of the armed forces as an instrument of force made them pursue a strict separation between military operations and the civilian aspects of peacekeeping, such as policing, administrative functions, and political and societal reconstruction. In his book Soldiers and Civil Power, Thijs Brocades Zaalberg argues that this policy failed to match up to reality. Supporting civil authorities, and at times even substituting them (de facto military governance), became the key to reaching any level of success in Cambodia, Somalia, Bosnia and Kosovo. As a result of the false segregation between the civilian and the military domain, this was accomplished mostly by improvisation and creativity of commanders who probed for the limiting boundaries of their original mandate by reaching ever further into the civilian sphere.

The Clingendael Centre for Strategic Studies (CCSS) is a joint venture of the Netherlands Institute of International Relations Clingendael and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research TNO.

Review:

"Zaalberg has produced an insightful, comparative study of peace operations that should appeal to members of the academic, policy, and military communities"[-]Roy McCullough - Military History - 'In zijn onlangs gepubliceerde proefschrift Soldiers and Civil Power onderzocht de historicus Thijs Brocades Zaalberg de verhouding tussen civiele en militaire verantwoordelijkheden in vredesmissies. Het is een belangwekkend boek, want vredesmissies vormen zo langzamerhand de belangrijkste operaties van de Nederlandse krijgsmacht. Soldiers and Civil Power vormt een waardevolle achtergrond nu de discussie over de troepenzending naar de Afghaanse provincie Uruzgan hoog is opgelaaid." -Joeri Boom, Groene Amsterdammer3-2-2006
