Military Support to Governance

In the early stages of S&R operations, the military may have to fill the governance void until the security situation improves. For example, this may require the military to support elections and any transitional administration. Such activities will facilitate a return to normality and foster support from the local population. Military expertise may be sought to support various governance activities. This type of S&R activity is difficult to categorize and will depend on the situation and requirements. In the early stages, the military may be the only agency capable of assuming such responsibilities to assist in planning and management and to provide communications and leadership. Planning and conduct of governance related tasks should be done in conjunction with non-military agencies that have expertise in these areas.
