Building Resilience at Home and Abroad: The Role of Reservists

Building Resilience at Home and Abroad: The Role of Reservists

Recent major changes in our security environment have made mandatory the study of new concepts. New buzzwords have appeared that try to define, or at least reveal, a shift of paradigm. Among those, "resilience" has gained interest, as it aims at helping individuals, systems and societies, to recover after any kind of unprecedented, unpredictable and catastrophic shock. In an era where the level of threats and risks questions the ability of stakeholders, government and international organizations to protect their population, building and maintaining resilience has become a key issue.

CIOR Annual Report 2015-16

CIOR Annual Report - During the period July 2015 – June 2015 the Interallied Confederation of Reserve Officers (CIOR) had numerous activities and realized the projects, following its battle rhythm. Once taken into consideration that current threats call for a comprehensive understanding of the world in which we live in, reservists can offer their unique abilities to bridge the gap between militaries and civilians: they provide their unique insights, they fill ranks and strengthen our armed forces, and they instil within the whole society a feeling of awareness. The reservists can almost be seen as key enablers to comprehensive approach, given their unique positioning and their familiarity with both military and civilian crisis management processes. Reservists are more than just a reinforcement that could be mobilized, through military channels. Reaching out to reservists, as individual civilians, opens a new field of actions for both local government and reservists. This process is best facilitated by the associations of reservists within CIOR.
