Abstract : NATO's "New Strategic Concept" recognized the need to reorganize forces to respond to "multifaceted... multidirectional" threats and to "permit measured, flexible and timely responses" to crisis while relying increasingly on "multinational forces". Accordingly, The 1994 NATO Summit proposed the CJTF-HQ concept by which the collective assets of the Alliance could be made available for European led "out of area" operations. This paper investigates lessons learned from combined/joint peace operations involving NATO, WEU, and non-Alliance participants, along with CJTF criteria independently developed by NATO and the WEO in order to provide guidance for CJTF-HQ staff functional requirements and organizational relationships. It concludes with a proposal for a CJTF-MQ organizational concept that is "separable but not separate" for Nato or WEO to effectively conduct peace support operations. (KAR) P. 1
