Ekhaugen, Lene. 2020. Whole-of-government coordination for complex operations: Symbolic politics or coordination failure? Journal of Strategic Studies Ekhaugen, Lene. 2020. Whole-of-government coordination for complex operations: Symbolic politics or coordination failure? Journal of Strategic Studies <p>​<span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;">Whole-of-government coordination has produced meagre results if measured against declared aims. However, an assessment of such coordination efforts should include also unstated aims. Based on an in-depth study of the primary high-level coordination body for Norway’s Afghanistan engagement, this article finds that the body was successful in pursuing symbolic politics. Showcasing was an underlying but non-declared aim of the body in question. These findings are significant because they provide an explanation why governments continue to pursue this kind of coordination efforts despite their apparent lack of success. Improved coordination was achieved mostly in terms of information sharing.</span><br></p><p><span style="color:#333333;font-family:"open sans", sans-serif;font-size:17.6px;">Read the article from <a href="https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/01402390.2020.1730819">Journal of Strategic Studies</a>.</span></p>
