The first copy of the new NATO doctrine on CIMIC, Allied Joint Publication for civil-military cooperation (AJP-3.19) was handed over by the custodian to the Director of the CCOE Colonel Wolfgang Paulik.

The AJP-3.19 was promulgated on the 9th of November and is now the official NATO doctrine for CIMIC and supersedes the AJP-3.4.9 from 2013.

The review process started in 2016, when the NATO nations decided to conduct a full revision of the current doctrine on CIMIC, under the leadership of the custodian, provided by the CIMIC  COE, a writing team produced the new publication within the given timelines. The new doctrine is fundamental for understanding NATO CIMIC as a joint function and its application in all types of operations.
