Example text

While the Canadian military forces provided security, the CIMIC unit utilized its resources and money to assist local groups and NGOs with their humanitarian projects. The Canadian embassy provided $50,000 to CIMIC to be used for aid. With this money, CIMIC personnel were able to establish conditions in which NGOs could continue to deliver their relief aid and assistance to the local population. CIMIC also performed community impact projects such as: building tanks for clean drinking water; building desks for schools; and basic garbage clean up.

However, with the outbreak of clan violence in Somalia (1992–93), internecine slaughter in Bosnia (1992–95), genocide in Rwanda (1994), and attempts at ethnic cleansing in Kosovo (1997–99), preoccupation with human security reemerged. This time, practice led theory.

Furthermore, this scenario had not been expected by UN humanitarian agencies: “UNHCR did not anticipate the size and speed of the exodus, nor could it reasonably be expected to do so” (UNHCR 2000: 6). Civilian agencies were thus unable to provide help, letting Albania and Macedonia face the problem, where degraded domestic logistical capacities justified NATO deployment for humanitarian purposes. From this perspective, we can view the humanitarianmilitary deployment in Albania and Macedonia as a direct response to a civil–military threat (civilians pushed out by Serbian forces in order to produce a political-military effect).
