Headquarters Supreme Allied Commander Transformation (HQ SACT), in cooperation with the Romanian Gendarmerie, hosted the second NATO Stability Policing Concept Development Workshop, on 27 February to 2 March, 2017, in Bucharest, Romania.
Stability policing activities aim to establish a safe and secure environment, restore public order and security, counter irregular activities, such as terrorism and criminal, and establish the conditions for a stable governance and development through the provision of military forces with the special capability of civil policing.
In the framework of the COE federated approach, the NATO MW COE contributed to the Stability Policing Concept Development effort with the Concept Development Branch Head and the Deputy Director/COS.
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 was to identify a comprehensive list of DOTMLPFI (Doctrine, Organisation, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel, Facilities, Interoperability) requirements for an effective NATO Stability Policing Concept.
