As stated in the 2016 Warsaw Summit Declaration, the allies "seek to contribute more to the efforts of the international community in projecting stability and strengthening security outside our territory, thereby contributing to Alliance security overall."
In order to meet this mission, NATO needs to develop an expeditionary approach and capability. The aim of this workshop is to identify a comprehensive list of Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities and Interoperability requirements for an effective NATO Stability Policing Concept. This concept supports the Projecting Stability aspirations of NATO's Allied Command Transformation Campaign Plan designed to contribute to the realization of the overarching Warsaw Summit themes of defence, deterrence and projecting stability.
Stability Policing is based on the principle of working in partnership with the local, regional, and national communities and authorities. However, under a Comprehensive Approach, other military and non-military actors including Intergovernmental Organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations, indigenous and international police forces, and contractors will likely contribute to Stability Policing activities. In addition, some of these actors may be key in providing specialized or modular/plug-in capabilities to address specific requirements during a Stability Policing mission.
