          • What does the IPAP mean for Serbia’s participation in multinational operations?

          • Republic of Serbia has identified participation in multinational operations and attainment of systems interoperability with the states participating in NATO’s Partnership for Peace among the priorities of its defence policy defined in its strategic documents. This backgrounder emphasizes the significance of the Individual Partnership Action Plan (IPAP) for Serbia's participation in multinational operations, defines interoperability and analyzes how it is achieved.

        • Serbia obliged to participate in multinational operations led by the UN and EU, but not NATO. Nevertheless, as a part of its cooperation with NATO, Serbia is developing its capabilities in order to achieve interoperability which is necesseary for participating in multinational operations.

          At the beginning of the backgrounder, there is an explanation of the importance of IPAP for Serbian foreign policy and its defence. Later on the author defines interoperability as an ability of the armed forces of different countries to work effectively together so as to exchange information, services and equipment. The benefits of interoperability can be assessed by observing four levels:

          • Strategic;

          • Operational;

          • Tactical, and

          • Technological.

          This backgrounder presents objectives and activities stated by Serbia in the IPAP, in order to achieve interoperability with members of Partnership for Peace. That includes areas of equipment and transport; education, training and exercises; the operational capabilities concept; the status of forces deployed to partner countries. Together with the analysis of the IPAP agreement, achieved results in the area of interoparbility are presented as well, such as the certificate about the country's full capacity in the NATO codification system for arms and other military equipment, relevant agreements concluded with NATO and common activities of the Serbian Army and members of the Partnership of Peace.

          Preparation of this backgrounder was supported by the British Embassy Belgrade through the project “IPAP in Vernacular”. The views expressed in this backgrounder are those of the author and do not reflect the views of the United Kingdom.
