ACMC Quick Impact Workshops
The workshops seek to improve understanding and effectiveness by identifying potential lessons and future opportunities.
The Workshops draw on the experience and observations of Australians who have been part of an an interagency and international crisis, conflict or other response effort.
Aim — The Workshops aim to facilitate discussion on considerations regarding civil-military-police interaction and the use of military and civil defence assets in such situations. The workshop aims to promote broad agency discussion and understanding of civil-military-police responses.
Outcome – The considerations and observations raised in the workshops will inform a discussion paper which is then circulated to all attendee agencies and made available from the ACMC website.
