Joint Doctrine Note 6/11 (JDN 6/11) defines what is meant by partnership and partnering in a national joint interagency and military context. The framework used throughout the publication is based upon building the capacity and capability of indigenous military forces during a deliberate intervention to stabilise a fragile or failed state.
The term embedded partnering and the words partner and partnership have taken on significant importance in the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. The difficulty is that they are not well defined, which can be both a freedom and a constraint. It is important that we understand what these terms mean and the specific context in which they should be used.
This publication is intended to create debate and inform future doctrine thereafter.
