“The Netherlands seeks to base cooperation between parts of government – as well as between actors in conflict areas and between actors at international level – on a shared view of the situation, and, as a next step, to deduce its goals from this shared view. To achieve a shared view, the various actors’ goals and activities should in any case not conflict and, better still, should reinforce one another.” “the integrated approach is the application of a practical way of working that enables the Dutch government …to find the most effective combination of instruments and actors to promote security and stability in fragile states and conflict areas.”
