Understanding and intelligence support to joint operations (JDP 2-00)

Provides the framework for developing understanding and intelligence in support of joint operations at home and overseas.



JDP 2-00 (third edition) ‘Understanding and intelligence support to joint operations’ emphasises the increasingly cross-governmental nature of intelligence and the need to inculcate a spirit of collaboration between them, including with partners and allies.

JDP 2-00 is the keystone intelligence doctrine written by specialists for generalists. It will be supported by the 2-10 series (including HUMINT, cultural awareness and intelligence requirement management) which are aimed at specialists.

Change 1: In light of the MOD policy of adopting NATO doctrine wherever possible, the change illustrates the relationship between UK Intelligence doctrine and relevant NATO doctrine publications.
