Who we are
The ACMC engages with, and supports, government departments and agencies, non-government organisations and international partners, including the United Nations, on civil-military-police issues to achieve focused outcomes for the region and globally. We support best practice approaches to civil-military-police engagement by those involved in the strategic planning and delivery of conflict and disaster management activities.
The ACMC is staffed by officials of relevant Australian Government departments and agencies. It is administered through the Vice Chief of Defence Force Group. Portfolio responsibility resides with the Minister for Defence.
We are governed by an advisory panel drawn from our main stakeholders including:
- Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
- Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
- Department of Defence
- Department of Home Affairs
- Australian Federal Police
- New Zealand Government
- Australian Council for International Development
Heads of our primary stakeholder agencies signed a charter in 2014 which establishes our priorities and determines our work streams.
