Establishing and maintaining the necessary levels of trust in Australian civil-military relations has been tested over the past decade by incidents such as the ‘Skype’ and ‘children overboard’ incidents. This paper looks at civil-military relations; relationships between the civilian government, society and military leadership. It explores issues of trust, interests and accountability at this critical interface of national interest. It concludes with a list of suggestions that may help build more resilient relationships between those in the profession of arms, the elected government, and the people they both serve.
