About the product

Conducted under the auspicies of the United Nations or its regional organizations, the scope of missions given to armed forces is widening to include disaster relief, conflict prevention and a broad range of peace operations. However, the economic considerations are making it hard for nations to develop, train and equip forces for such missions. This publication examines the possiblity and the necessity for a fresh understanding of the role of armed forces in democratic nations, a change in their leadership and civic education and a new style in their use.
