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

Joint Doctrine Publication (JDP) 2-00: provides the framework for developing understanding and intelligence in support of joint operations at home and overseas.


JDP 2-00 (3rd 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.
