SDC seminar – Re-building Civil Society in Conflict Affected Developing Countries, April 2 2012
Modern conflicts are increasingly becoming complex political emergencies. The current crises include elements of insurgency, organised crime, and terrorism.
The political environments in developing countries are already complex, often characterized by power struggles, weak institutions, and social tensions created by poverty.
Various governments have faced the new realities of conflict by applying a more integrated approach known as the 3D approach: Defence, Diplomacy and Development.
Major-General Michael (Mike) Smith will address the topic:
Re-building Civil Society in Conflict Affected Developing Countries.
Correspondingly, Mike will draw on his personal experiences in Papua New Guinea, Cambodia, East Timor, and the Palestinian Territories and will discuss the 3D approach in this context that has been gaining momentum in recent years. He will also refer to developments in Afghanistan.
Major General Michael Smith OA is a former CEO of ActionAid Australia (formerly Austcare), and was the founding Executive Director of the Australian Governement's Civil-Military Centre (<http://www.acmc.gov.au>www.acmc.gov.au<http://www.acmc.gov.au>).
Mike holds a BA in History from the University of New South Wales, an MA in International Relations from the Australian National University, and is a Fellow of the Australian College of Defence and Strategic Studies. He formerly served as an Army Officer in the Australian Defence Force for 34 years, retiring in 2002. During his military service he held command appointments from platoon to brigade level, including service in Cambodia, East Timor, Kashmir and Papua New Guinea, where he experienced the tragedies caused by conflict and poverty, and the need for greater civil-military collaboration. His last military assignment was as Deputy Force Commander for the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET), in recognition of which he was promoted to an Officer in the Order of Australia.
Given his extensive background of work in overseas missions and development projects, Mike will share with us his insights on how the 3D integrated approach can pick up the pieces and re-build civil society in these harshly affected developing countries.
Open dialogue among the group participants will then follow.
All are welcome to this controversial Sydney Development Circle session.
Feel free to bring along photos and other promotional materials that showcase the re-building civil society in conflict affected developing countries. These can be placed on our resource table, for sharing as we network.
