The CMIW is a one-week residential workshop which supports the development of effective civil-military-policing capabilities to prevent, prepare for, and respond to conflicts and disasters overseas. ACMC runs CMIWs on a regular basis. These workshops are aimed at mid‑level government (EL1/EL2), military (05/06) and equivalent level police, non-government and civil society personnel whose areas of work focus on national disaster management, stabilisation, protection of civilians, reconstruction and UN peacekeeping operations.
The theme for CMIW 2017 was ‘Delivering ‘Joined-up’ Government: Achieving the Integrated Approach to Offshore Crisis Management’.
The workshop program is designed to: promote civil-military-police understanding and engagement; improve networks across government, non-government and international counterparts; and provide a learning environment which enables participants to share knowledge on differing national approaches to civil-military-police interaction during crisis management.
