Abstract:The field of civil-military relations examines the relationships between military leaders and the duly constituted authority that exercises civil control of the military. Some have questioned whether these relationships have changed since Canada's involvement in the war in Afghanistan, and called into question the appropriate public role for military leaders. This thesis argues that the principle of civil control remains firmly established in Canada both in theory and in practice. However there has been significant change in the civil-military dynamic , which is the complex web of relationships that determine how this control is exercised. The thesis identifies three clusters of relationships in this web and examines how the players in these clusters contributed to the constantly changing nature of civil-military relations over three distinct time periods. Given the assumptions of traditional liberal-democratic civil-military relations theory, this thesis examines whether these changes are problematic or merely an evolution to a new state of affairs that will enhance our understanding of defence issues in Canada. The change, this thesis argues, has altered the relationships in a way that does not threaten the principle of civil control. This new reality has however had a significant impact on the formulation and implementation of the government's overall policy agenda during the past five years. Keywords. Civil-Military Relations; Civil-Military Dynamic; Civil control; defence decision making; shared responsibility theory; military politics; defence policy.
